The Stack Exchange Android app has been removed from Google Play, but the Applications option in the Settings page is still showing the SE application for Android.

Enter image description here

Yes, we can remove them manually by clicking the remove option, but can this option showing SE for Android be disabled for all who have used the app earlier as the app is no longer available?

  • @rene I meant the option which shows SE for Android – Ak. Oct 28 '20 at 15:35
  • Can’t you still use the app if you have it downloaded? – Laurel Oct 28 '20 at 15:53
  • @Laurel I've uninstalled the app long before it's been removed from the play store. – Ak. Oct 28 '20 at 15:59
  • I think it is weird if what you authorized gets fiddled with. I even believe the text is static once you authorized, aka its stored with your profile. Changing / disabling would be a one-off with little gain. Let's not do this. – rene Oct 28 '20 at 16:07
  • How would the website know that? – Laurel Oct 28 '20 at 16:09

    FWIW, I'm still using the Android app, and since it's Android, there are safe alternative market sites where you can download the APK and install it again. – Meta Andrew T. Oct 29 '20 at 15:07
