In this guide, we will show you the steps to remove your OnePlus account section from the Settings menu. “Nothing” seems to be going right for the OEM in the past couple of years. Right since it decide to incorporate the elements of ColorOS in its in-house OxygenOS, it has received criticism from left, right, and center. As if that isn’t enough, it went a step ahead and removed one of its USPs- the alert slider.
Coming back to its OS, while I’m never a fan of Oppo’s underlying OS on top of OxygenOS, the fact that it has its account settings right at the top of the Settings menu does no good either. And the constant stickied message to Gert exclusive perks with RedCableClub! further degrades the UI. They could have created a new section and added all the account-related details there, similar to how Google does.
Or at least send that account banner at the bottom of the page. But UI/UX and ColorOS don’t really go hand in hand. Fortunately, though, we have a nifty tweak in our hands through which you could easily remove your OnePlus account section from the Settings menu. let’s check out how this could be carried out.
