How to get rid of TouchPal 2018

This one application gives the vibes of a malware. I'm using Oppo Realme 1 and noticed TouchPal 2018 icon on my home screen out of nowhere. I have no memory of installing it, nor I suspect any application I have installed that would do it.
So I highly doubt the guys at Oppo are behind this.

I have my concerns on what this might actually be doing on my phone. Then I went on to delete/uninstall it, but to my surprise, it just won't leave my phone.

This little step by step process will help you remove TouchPal from your Oppo Realme. I have also attached the screenshots to help you further in case of a language barrier.


  1. Go to Settings and click on Security.
  2. Click on Permissions and switch to Apps tab to manage permissions granted to Applications on your phone.
  3. Find TouchPal 2018 and make sure all of the permissions to this app are put on Forbid.
  4. Go back to Home screen, press and hold TouchPal 2018 icon and click on Delete.
