How to uninstall GBWhatsApp

Uninstalling GBWhatsApp is carried out identically to the rest of Android applications. The fastest way has to do with searching for the icon amongst your installed apps, keeping it pressed for a few seconds until a tiny options menu appears and then press App Info.

Before uninstalling the app, it’s recommendable to create a backup of the conversations held in the application if we don’t want to lose them. For such purpose, go the application’s Settings menu and create the backup from the option available for such purpose. Therefore, you can recover them and restore them whenever you install the official WhatsApp Messenger or any other MOD.

You can use any of these two methods to delete GBWhatsApp from your phone. However, an ordinary uninstall like this one doesn’t mean that all the app’s related files are going to be removed. To start off, backups are kept in local system files but also other useless files related to the app can remain on the system taking up space. If you want to remove any traces of the app, including system files, you’ll have to download a file explorer and visit all the folders to search for them.
