Root access

Root access

I would like to be able to remove items such as the eshare and other things that slow down my box. I need root access to do that. 

 

Also, Because of Eshare my kid figured how to make an unprotected hotspot for his friends but I didn't notice this until recently. Anyone could have used our internet because of this app which is not what I want and I don't think anyone else would too.

You don't need root access to do either of those things. 

1. If you don't like an app running you can disable it under settings. It's still technically installed taking up a few MB but that's it. 

2. If your kid is  enabling it after that and still using it  you can hide it with adb shell (again, without root) https://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/3eav7t/get_rid_of_unwanted_system_apps_adb_shell_pm_hide/
