Deactivate application via script command - Android Plus

Hey guys,

i have a simple question. I know there is a way to send a script command to
delete applications.

Is there a script command to deactivate applications?

Does someone know the command?

Just use application-run-control (i.e. either add it in a blacklist, or leave it out from the whitelist) payload in an Android+ profile to disallow the installed app from being run or launched again.

My problem is that the application run control can't deactivate all of my apps.

My goal is to deactivate some "system" apps like chrome by force.

I would also prefer the whitelist but our customer is a bit difficult...

I have no problem using application-run-control blacklist to deactivate Chrome in hundreds of cases in the last few years.  However, Some recent Android 8/9 devices may have some other bundled apps using module(s) of Chrome, and thus it might not be possible to use application-run-control to deactivate Chrome is such cases.    One possible solution is to blacklist or even disable (in Device's Settings->Apps Manager) Chrome plus other related apps using Chrome's modules altogether.   Also, you might need to reboot a device to see if the MobiControl application-run-control policy deployed works or not.  

 

Apart from Chrome, what other system apps are you talking about?
