Remove Google Play Store
Is it possible to remove the Google Play store or hide it while still allowing content to be installed via website? There is content in the store that I don't want viewable on the phone. My computers are locked down with monitoring software, so it would be ok for apps to be installed from the website. I heard that stock apps can be removed by rooting a phone. If the Google Play store was removed, would that prohibit installing apps via website too?

Idk what kind of content you mean exactly, but if you go to the settings in the play store there is a filter where you can choose the level of maturity of apps that show.
I wouldn't un uninstall the play store. It'll probably cause trouble. Most custom launchers allow you to hide certain apps from showing up in your app drawer if the filter isn't good enough.

Re: Remove Google Play Store
Some of the content that I want blocked includes the magazines. There is content in there that is worse than the apps show and is not able to be filtered. There is also some questionable content that gets through the filter set at medium maturity. I have looked into the launchers that let you hide apps, such as the store, but it doesn't block the app from running. It just makes it a little harder to access.
Thanks for the reply
