Google is force-installing a Massachusetts COVID-19 tracking app on residents' Android devices without an easy way to uninstall it

For the past few days, users have reported that Google silently installed the Massachusetts 'MassNotify' app on their devices without the ability to open it or find it in the Google Play Store

I have no idea how they pulled this off, but it had to involve either Google, or Samsung, or both," a user wrote in a review on the Google Play Store

MassNotify is Massachusetts' COVID-19 contact tracing app that allows users who have opted into Android's 'COVID-19 Exposure Notifications' feature to be warned when exposed to the virus

However, Android users state that they have received the application even though they have not turned on the Android Exposure Notification settings on their device

You can see whether MassNotify is active by going to Settings -> Google -> COVID-19 Exposure Notifications

Many people, though, are reporting that they cannot find any icons for the app, and it is not found when searching for 'MassNotify' in the Google Play Store, and thus cannot uninstall the force-installed app

Instead, users have to go to the MassNotify Google Play Store URL that uses the app's internal name of 'Exposure Notifications Settings Feature - MA' and uninstall it from there
