Hey, Thanks for the reply.

Hexnode can remove apps from enrolled Android devices without having physical access to them.
In Samsung Knox devices, rooted devices and devices which run Hexnode MDM as a system app, the app uninstallation will be silent. In case of other generic devices, a prompt will appear on the device screen when you try to uninstall the app.
Please note that system apps cannot be removed from Android devices.

To remove app from a single device:

  • Navigate to Manage-> Devices and click on the desired device. You will be directed to the device summary page.
  • Go to the Applications sub-tab. Click on the trash icon next to app you wish to uninstall.
  • Click on Uninstall app. Click on Yes to confirm the action.

The action to uninstall the app will now be initiated.

If you have to remove the app from multiple devices, you can do it via remote actions.
