What is Bloatware?
Bloatware is a term used to describe pre-installed software programs or apps that come included with a new device, like a computer, smartphone, or tablet. Usually, the maker of the device or the supplier of the operating system will include these applications.
Bloated software can use up a lot of system resources and storage space on the device, which frequently leads to decreased performance or slower operation. Because these programs are frequently seen by many users as unneeded or unwelcome, the phrase “bloatware” is used to describe them. They could be demo versions of software, advertisements, manufacturer-specific apps, or other applications with limited utility for regular users.
Many users find bloatware bothersome since it clogs up their device’s storage, uses up system resources, and may even display adverts or notifications.
