At the moment I am using an ALCATEL ONE TOUCH PIXI android mobile. im currently deleting apps that I don't use. And I was wondering if u could please tell me and explain what the "MTK Logger" app is and what is used for please?

  • If it's a system app and doesn't come from Google, please don't delete it, no matter how insignificant it is, unless you've made a nandroid backup. – Firelord Mar 7 '16 at 15:52

this app saves all events (from other apps or hardware like connecting to charge) to sd card files as text. It takes a lot of space. to turn off it you must find file configuration mtklog-config.prop in etc folder and edit values true to false.


The MTKLogger file size in my Lenovo k8 was exactly 11.35gb.. I just performed clean Operation using Shareit's cleanit option and it is safe to delete as this doesn't effect any of your data, it only record the user actions performed. for example if u've opened camera, a text file will be saved in MTKLogger having information about that particular action.


To delete mtklog run file manager app, file directory will be shown, search through the tablet directory for the mtklog directory, higlight mtklog then delete by selecting the dustbin icon


It steals your information. Should be removed

  • It does log a lot of information about your device, and contains security holes through which other apps may obtain this (search for "Kryptowire BLU MTKLogger", for instance), and there is no good justification for why it should remain on your phone. Remove it, or better yet: get a ROM without it. – RolKau Aug 6 '17 at 21:42
