I was randomly looking through the Windows Task Manager and found “Your Phone”.
What is it? Is it spyware or a virus?
It’s a Microsoft UWP App that is built into Windows 10. It allows you to transfer texts, calls, emails and pictures from your phone (iPhone or android) into Windows.
Type in “your phone” into the start button to find it.
How can I disable the “Your Phone” app?
- Type “background apps” into the windows start button
- Scroll down to Your Phone and turn if off
How can I remove it?
- Right click on the start button and open Windows PowerShell (Admin)
- Type in the following: Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.YourPhone -AllUsers | Remove-AppxPackage
YourPhone comes with Windows and doesn’t need to be removed. It is a safe app to use and was created by Microsoft.
Do you use Your Phone or have you heard about it before? Please leave a comment below.
