Developed by SOTI Inc., MobiControl helps organizations manage and secure mobile devices, including smartphones, tablets, and rugged devices, across various operating systems such as Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS. Here’s how you can remove it:

Method 1: Using ADB Commands

ADB (Android Debug Bridge) is a command-line tool that facilitates interaction with Android devices. Through ADB commands, it’s possible to uninstall Mobicontrol from an Android device without a password.

1. Install ADB on your computer and connect your Android device using a USB cable.

You should see your device’s serial number listed, confirming its connection.

4. Type: adb shell and press Enter to access your device’s shell.

5. Once in the device’s shell, gain root access with the command: su

6. Navigate to the system apps folder by entering: cd /system/priv-app

7. Use the command ls to list the contents of the directory. Identify the Mobicontrol folder and make a note of its name.

To remove the Mobicontrol files, execute the command: rm -rf MOBICONTROL_FOLDER_NAME

Note: Replace MOBICONTROL_FOLDER_NAME with the actual name of the Mobicontrol folder.

8. Wait for the command to complete and reboot the Android device.
