This one application gives the vibes of a malware. I’m using Oppo Realme 1 and noticed TouchPal 2018 icon on my home screen out of nowhere. I have no memory of installing it, nor I suspect any application I have installed that would do it.
So I highly doubt the guys at Oppo are behind this.
I have my concerns on what this might actually be doing on my phone. Then I went on to delete/uninstall it, but to my surprise, it just won’t leave my phone.
This little step by step process will help you remove TouchPal from your Oppo Realme. I have also attached the screenshots to help you further in case of a language barrier.
- Go to Settings and click on Security.
- Click on Permissions and switch to Apps tab to manage permissions granted to Applications on your phone.
- Find TouchPal 2018 and make sure all of the permissions to this app are put on Forbid.
- Go back to Home screen, press and hold TouchPal 2018 icon and click on Delete.
