    I've had my phone almost two years and have never used tunein radio. Then suddenly yesterday it pops up a notification, and as soon as I touch that, trying to swipe-remove it, a station loads and starts playing. This is disastrous for me because mobile data is ridiculously expensive here and I need all of it for work purposes.
    So taoday I go to play store and uninstall it. And then get told that it's a system app so all the uninstall has done is remove all updates. Great, now I have a potentially insecure app that I don't want.

    How can I remove it, or at the very least block it from using network? (I do have Sophos AV, can that help?)

    Go in to settings/Apps and disable it. What phone are you using? I mean you could root it and remove it.

    Welcome to the forums.
    Here is how you can disable applications. It is geared toward the Galaxy series, but the steps are the same.

    What Golfdriver97 and Chex313 said: Simply go into settings -> apps -> all apps and disable it. I always remove all the upgrades, first, but I don't know as that matters, much.

    I actually bought TuneIn Radio Pro when it was on sale, some time ago, but I've since uninstalled it. I don't recall the reason, anymore, but I think it was because it never really shuts off when you exit it. It just keeps running and running, sucking up resources and battery. Since I rarely listen to Internet radio, that seemed a waste.
