How do I uninstall the client on an Android device?

Use these instructions to uninstall the IBM Verse client from your Android device.

About this task

IBM Verse requests to become an Android Device Administrator, unless it managed by MDM. In order to uninstall the client, the device administrator must first be disabled, if present.

If IBM Verse is not managed:
  • Launch the IBM Verse application on the Android device and select Menu > Tools > Uninstall application. If the uninstall process is initiated in this manner, you will not need to manually disable the device administrator.
  • If you choose to uninstall manually, you must first disable the device administrator. To do so, select Menu > Settings > Location & Security > Select device Administrators. After you have disabled the IBM Traveler device administrator, you can use the operating system to remove IBM Traveler, by navigating to Menu > Settings > Applications > Manage Applications.

If IBM Verse is managed, the Uninstall application option will not appear. In that case, you can uninstall using the normal method for uninstalling applications in Android.
