AppFlash is a content discovery service, or may we just say that it is a one-stop destination, designed to recommend you everything from a movie to apps to restaurants. All you need to do is, type and you will get the best possible results. Sounds almost similar to how Google works. Right? Has it ever happened to you that you heard about an interesting movie but you have no idea where it is playing? Well, go and ask AppFlash. It will show you all the streaming apps where the movie is playing and also it will recommend you to buy tickets if the movie is still in theatres.

Another great feature of this app is that it can stream just about any content you want without having to download another app to do so. After realizing how useful this application could be, Verizon started pre-installing AppFlash on its Android devices. Even if you don’t have the app installed, AppFlash allows you to use some apps without the hassle of downloading or installing them.

Is It Safe?

The answer to this could be both yes and no. In order to provide personalized recommendations, AppFlash compiles user data as you operate your device. This might include your location, even if you are not using the app. It should not really be worried upon, as it is similar to other popular apps that collect your usage, location, and preferences.Most of the applications that ask for location permission track your location even when you are not using the app, especially the search engine and social media apps. And same is the case with AppFlash. So, if you are feeling less safe because it is tracking your location, know that it is highly likely that you already have a similar app installed on your device. You can download the app from Google Play Store. However, it is advised to the users to read the privacy policy before enabling the app. It is one of those bloatware apps that aren’t easy to uninstall, in case you want to.

How to Enable and Disable AppFlash?

The AppFlash comes pre-installed, however, disabled on newer devices. Earlier, the app used to download, install, and enable itself without users’ permission which annoyed the users bringing down its ratings on Google Play Store. But now, you can enable or disable AppFlash yourself any time through your phone’s settings. Below are the instructions to enable or disable the app. They may vary based on the device you are using.Step 1. Navigate to Settings on your device and then tap Display.Step 2. Select Home screen.Step 3. Now, choose the Left Home screen.Step 4. In the list that appears, tap AppFlash to enable it. In case, you want to disable the app, select None.Step 5. Tap OK. The changes you made will be saved.

If the app came pre-installed on your device, you won’t be able to uninstall it. If you want to disable a pre-installed app, the only option you have is to disable the app. However, if you installed AppFlash yourself, you can uninstall it just the way you would uninstall any other app. Now, it is completely up to you if you want to use the app or not. Make sure you read the privacy policy thoroughly. If you have any issues you may disable or uninstall it any time you feel like. If you are fine with the policies then you can explore a variety of useful and interesting features in the app.
