I've got a Sony Xperia E4g which runs on Android 4.4.4. MTK Logger doesn't appear in the apps screen, but it's in the list of apps in the settings app.

I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I can't find it when I plug my phone into my laptop and look at the files.

How to remove MTK Logger?

  • I've seen that. It doesn't work for me. I can't any files for MTKLOGGER so I can't find the config file.

If you can't find the shortcut for MTKLogger, you can open mtklogger using ADB

adb shell am start -n com.mediatek.mtklogger/com.mediatek.mtklogger.MainActivity

or terminal emulator

am start -n com.mediatek.mtklogger/com.mediatek.mtklogger.MainActivity

then select the setting to disable it.


Don't remove it. It is a logger by MediaTek and it is safe. You can access related settings by typing *#*#3646633#*#* in the dialer.

You can find a log option to enable logging. By the way, it is not very useful for the end-user. It is there for debugging purposes for developers.
