How to remove malware on Xiaomi Poco C31

If your Xiaomi Poco C31 becomes slow or behaves strangely, there are many solutions to this problem. You can reset your phone to factory settings and return it to its original state, or you can do something called “unlocking” which will remove a number of preinstalled apps (malware).

If you bought yourself a Poco C31, you probably noticed that the phone has a lot of pre-installed applications. Even if the phone is new and turned on for the first time, you will find that there are already many applications in the phone. MIUI, the ROM that comes with the Poco C31, contains many applications that most consumers never use. Even though these apps are not used, they still exist on the phone’s internal storage, wasting precious megabytes.

A few megabytes here and there may not seem like a lot. But once you use your phone and fill the internal storage with photos and other data, the space taken up by these apps becomes important. So let’s see how you can safely remove these malicious apps from your Poco C31.

How to remove Xiaomi Poco C31 malware

There are two ways to remove malware on Poco C31. The first method involves using the Xiaomi ADB Fastboot Tools program, and the second one is using pure ADB commands.
