Remove Apps via AirWatch Console

So far, we have seen how to deploy apps using AirWatch. Having the ability to remove the apps from a device is as important as deploying them, especially in the scenarios where a device is lost or stolen or if an employee leaves the organization. This not only clears the sensitive app data from the device but it also revokes access to the corporate resources and functionality that the app has access to.

1. Uninstall the Web App

In this section, we will see how to remove the apps from the enrolled devices.

Back in the AirWatch Console,

  1. Click on Apps & Books
  2. Expand Applications
  3. Expand Web
  4. Click on Web Links
  5. Click on Assigned Users icon with value 1

1.2. Uninstall

  1. Click on X to remove the web app from your enrolled device.
  2. Click OK from the pop-up window.
  3. Click the X on the View Devices screen to close it.

1.3. Validate Web App Removal on the device

Validate that the web app was removed from the enrolled device.

In this section, we removed a web app from the device but using similar steps you can remove internal and public apps as well. In the lab, we have configured our apps to remove on un-enroll, so they will be automatically removed upon un-enrolling the device at the end of this lab.
