            How do I remove GuardianMPS from an Android Phone/Tablet?

            Users may wish to remove the GuardianMPS app for one of many reasons.

            On an Android device there is an extra step to removing compared to uninstalling most apps.

            This is due to the fact that the GuardianMPS "stealth mode" features require special access to the phone functions and create a " device administrator" entry on the device to achieve security functions like bypassing the lock screen.
