I recently gave up Facebook and wanted to remove Facebook’s app. For me Facebook has become too much of a trade for privacy. Given that change in trust, it annoys me not having the option to remove the app on Samsung.

Enable Android debugging and install Android Debug Bridge (ADB) tools:

1
sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb

ADB lets you issue commands to the device’s shell, such as pm the package manager. You need to find the app you want to remove:

1
2
pm list packages | grep [packagename]
pm uninstall -k --user 0 [packagename]
Remove Facebook

Success!
