Is there any way to completely uninstall/disable the Quest browser?

    I believe you can do it if you have developer mode turned on. You have to connect your Quest to your PC and run cmd as administrator from the location where you have adb installed and then you have to type in the command something like "adb uninstall com.oculus.browser" something like that. You need to find out the exact package name of the browser then you can uninstall it this way I believe, not sure though.

    You could probably do it easier through SideQuest, as it lists the apps installed, then you just select the app, click on it and choose to uninstall. I'm not sure if it will automatically reinstall itself later though, such as after an update.

    I have been using VRSideloader and in that, you can only uninstall already sideloaded apps and not stock apps that is why I suggested the other way. never tried Sidequest, will check it. Thanks

    Cheers. You may have to select to 'show all installed', but it should be possible. Btw...I've never heard of VRSideloader...I just learned something new. :P

    Could someone try this and let me know if it works? I don't want to be stuck with a device that's not safe for kids and nothing to do with it.

    I'm going to say it worked since "Runion17" hasn't posted it didn't, try sidequest for yourself, it will either work or it wont, either way it wont harm your quest.
