Install adb
Enable developer mode
Adb shell
Pm list packages

Once you look thru the apps installed Google the suspected app by highlighting and right clicking to copy
Once you found it

use this command now
pm uninstall -k --user 0 (app name here)

It shows all hidden and installed app. Just look at the list. And Google the name I normally just highlight the list in control panel right click and paste it into notepad . Then Google the com. Names and see if any are ones that are used to track
