Disable Packages

Disable Packages is a Launcher feature that enables disabling packages at start up (after configuration is loaded).


Disable Packages is a Launcher feature that enforces the organization's security policies on your Android enterprise devices. It prevents users from installing unwanted apps that can take up more storage space, compromise data security, and even distract users from focusing on their tasks.

User Guide

This feature disables packages after start-up. Packages can only be disabled after loading the configuration. Only packages that are not in the ‘protected’ list of applications will be disabled. For instance, a device administrator cannot disable com.bluefletch.ems.support.

  1. After loading the configuration is loaded, this feature will disable all packages in the disablePackages collection.

  2. If the package exists within the Protected List collection, it will not be disabled.
