How to uninstall Safe Surfer for Android

This guide will show you how to uninstall the Safe Surfer for Android app, along with any protection installation remaining on the device.

We show uninstallation on a Samsung device (running Android 14, released in 2023), although the steps will be very similar if you are installing on a different kind of device.

Step 1: Uninstall the Safe Surfer app



Open the Settings app, then tap the Apps menu.



Scroll down the list until the PIN screen is triggered by detecting the Safe Surfer app listing. Enter your PIN to prepare the Safe Surfer app to be uninstalled.



Go back to the Settings app > Apps > Safe Surfer. Tap the Uninstall option.



Tap the "Deactivate and uninstall" option.



Tap the OK option.



Step 2: Turn off private DNS



This step is required if you installed the permanent mode feature during setup.

Go back to the Settings main menu, then tap the search icon (or search bar) found at the top.



Search for “private dns”, then tap the Private DNS menu result.



Tap the Private DNS menu.



Tap the Automatic option, then tap the Save option.



The Private DNS feature should now be on the default settings, which means that the protection has now been fully disabled.
