I have a Nexus 10 on which I have a master account, and a secondary (restricted) account for my kids.

Recently, one of them got hold of it while it was logged in and installed a bunch of games. I removed them again — or so I thought. I just found out that, while they don't show up in the list of apps tray, they do show up among the app permissions for the secondary account, as well as in the list of apps available via settings -> apps.

I can't uninstall them from either location. While I suspect I can I uninstall them from the secondary account, how do I know they're really gone if I do so?

Shouldn't I be able to uninstall them from the master account?

  • Not really a dupe to the question, but yes: same cause, so the answer fits both :)

  • @Izzy I'm not sure how duplicates are handled here, but I'm used to the SF Stack, where duplicates focus on the answers rather than the questions. Also, I'm the OP and that answer solved my problem.

  • I was not critisizing you – just left a pointer for those who might wonder. I fully agree with you and marked it duplicate. Sorry for any confusion I might have caused!

  • @Izzy, I didn't take it as criticism, so no problem.

  • Duplicates are always supposed to be about the question. I was on SF a couple days ago and saw 5 open questions with the same answer. But, you're the OP. Jul 19, 2015 at 16:58

1 Answer 1


Go to Settings > Application Manager > Downloaded under both accounts and uninstall the app(s).

  • Will that indeed uninstall them completely, or just leave them inaccessible for both accounts?

  • @SQB It should comoletly remove the apps. If the are getting reinstalled there must be anither issue.
