Device administrator is a feature that grants Malwarebytes privileges at the operating system level of Android and Chrome OS devices. We only recommend deactivating Malwarebytes as a device administrator if you need to uninstall the application.
Disable Device Administrator on an Android device
- Open Malwarebytes.
- Tap the Menu icon.
- Tap Settings.
- Tap Other.
- Tap Device Administrator to uncheck and deactivate the setting.
After Malwarebytes for Android is deactivated as a device administrator, you can Uninstall Malwarebytes for Android.
