Has anyone tried Lucky Patcher?

Hi guys, I just bought a Xiaomi Redmi Note Pro and I've seen that I have some apps installed on my device that I'm not interested in.

Talking to some friends, they told me that there is an application called Lucky Patcher that is able to remove these annoying applications from the device permanently. I don't know if any of you have ever tried it. My friends have recommended me download it, but before I download it and install it on my device, I would really like to have a more professional opinion or someone besides my colleagues who has tried it on a device similar to mine.

Thank you very much in advance!

I'm not sure what your friends are saying, but "removing" apps is not what Lucky Patcher does.  Lucky Patcher is an apk modifier that primarily removes ads and any pay-to-play features in many games.  Basically, the way game makers make money within the game is removed.  So people can play, and the developers get cheated out of their income.

Think of going to work, and your boss comes in one day and says... "sorry, you have to keep working here but I can't pay you for the next year because no one wants to pay for what we do". 

That's what Lucky Patcher does.

Read carefully what that site says it does.  It can get into android system and modify some things like permissions of an app, but only if the phone is rooted.  You say that yours is not, so the app wouldn't do much but modify non-system apps you loaded and can also delete anyway.

BTW, not ALL apps that don't come from Google Play are detected as malware.  You only have to set your phone to allow apps from other sources in Settings.  There are some sites that do better curating that others, but it is still a risk you have to be willing to take.  There is nothing to generally "detect" malware.  Sure, there are some so-called anti-virus apps for android, but those tend to be just as bad - resource heavy and full of ads themselves and pop-ups that claim a problem, but then you have to pay money to fix.

If it was safe Google Play would have it listed. Read remarks from the link below. Quora posters lean toward an unsafe app.

I understand, however, that it is true that all APKs that do not come from Google Play are detected as malware. Still, as I understood from the link you provided, if my device is not rooted, there would be no danger, right?

Thank you very much for your help, I think your answer helped me and made it very clear what Lucky Patcher is all about. I see that unfortunately installing it on my device would not do what I want it for. Thank you.


I take this opportunity to ask if you know of any other application that can do something similar to what I want: remove native applications from the device that take up valuable space on the mobile.

Thank you very much again

You can make and also get custom roms if you are interested at XDA developers. I suggest going to that site and exploring around.
