Samsung Users Can’t Delete the Facebook App

Users can’t delete Facebook app on certain Samsung models, and people are pissed and shocked Samsung is notorious for having a lot of apps that you simply cannot delete which can be very annoying indeed because of the fact that it would make it difficult for you to ration the little memory that you have left over after you are done downloading the various necessary apps that you need in order to make the most of the phone that you are currently using.

It turns out that Facebook is one of the apps that you cannot uninstall even if you wanted to. This news has come out after a number of Samsung users found that when they went into Settings and attempted uninstall the Facebook app, they got two options which were disable and force stop. Needless to say, neither of these options are going to allow you to remove the app entirely from your device.

Several Samsung Phone Users Perturbed to Find They Can't Delete Facebook App

"I am using Samsung A7 (2018) device. And I can't delete facebook! I can only disable it! Even from (Google) Play store! I can only re-enable and update the app!", posted a user on Twitter.
Samsung is widely known for having Facebook come preinstalled on its phones and for wanting a lot of access to the data that these apps collect. This makes it a little concerning that you can’t remove the app entirely, especially if you think about the fact that there are so many instances of people having their data stolen in one way or another.

Facebook has often stated that if you disable the app you basically get the same results as uninstalling it. While it will still take up a portion of your memory, it is supposedly not going to be active or collecting data. That being said, people have lost a lot of their trust in Facebook after the terrible year that the social media platform had which resulted in a lot of people choosing to stop using the platform. It seems like Samsung is going to come under a similar amount of scrutiny now.
