A80 and Family Link vs Opera

Sat Sep 12, 2020 6:27 am

Hi,

I just bought an A80 for my son and wanted to use Google Family Link with it. This works so far, there is just one critical issue: Opera.
This app does not appear in the Family Link Control and can be used on the A80 without any restrictions, which is a critical problem.
Also, there is no way to deinstall Opera, which seems to be an app beyond normal Android control and likely had wired by Blackview.
Is there a way to remove Opera from the phone and use Family Link without restrictions ?

Cheers & Thanks

Chris

Hello, the Opera is added by Google, so you can't delete it/

Opera fixed with Android ? I have my doubts. Chrome is the Google browser and this one is fully controllable ober Google Family Link.
Opera is an additional package that nowhere comes with Android and if so, it would be controllable via Family Link. Do you have any public source where this is stated ?

If this is a Blackview preinstalled App, I would ask if either it can be removed by the user or made controllable by Family Link somehow - otherwise this phone is just not usable with Family Link, because all actions in Opera can not be restricted - either webpages nor usage time.

Hello,
Opera is not part of the Google Apps. In the A80 it is set a system App and can't be updated!

I'm very disappointed with this phone.

You can disable Opera by pressing long on the Opera icon and choose app-info in the menu. Then stop Opera and disable it. The Opera icon in the apps list and on the home screen/menu will disappear. After that install google chrome from the play store and change the default app to be chrome.

Another way is to root the phone and use adb or some app like 3C to remove Opera. Then install Chrome, etc.

This cannot be done.

Can you please explain why? I use Opera and I would like to update it.
P.S. I keep asking this and you keep rejecting the posts, not very polite.
