Orange Center app for Orange France customers
Orange France offers their Fairphone customers two special operator apps called App Center and Manual Selector.
The purpose of these apps is to facilitate apps from Orange, such as 'Orange et Moi', to their customers.
The apps are pre-loaded but disabled by default on every Fairphone 3 device*.
When/how will the apps be enabled?
- The App Center and Manual Selector are pre-installed but disabled by default on every Fairphone 3 device
- Manual Selector is an app installer that will be triggered during the setup process only for Orange France users.
- When an Orange France SIM card is inserted into the device, the App Center automatically installs for the main user*
- The apps can also be manually enabled by navigating to Settings → Settings → Apps & notifications → open See all apps → App Center → Enable
*The main user - called "owner" on the device - is the only user impacted by the app. Any other profile (i.e. guest, etc.) will have the app "disabled until used" and no notification will be shown.
Switching provider does not disable the app
Removing the Orange France SIM-card from the device will not disable the apps automatically. If you switch network provider and want to disable the Orange apps, you must do this manually. Because the app are system apps, they can not be uninstalled.
To manually disable the apps, go to:
Settings → Apps & notifications → open See all apps → App Center → Disable.
App Center will install the 'Orange et Moi' app on the device automatically. This is a feature of the app itself and Fairphone is not responsible for the behavior and content of Orange applications.
*When you add third User profile on your FP3, it might happen that this triggers the Orange apps. Choose Exit the app after you click on the notification to deactivate the app.
In case you have any further questions about this matter, please feel free to contact your Orange France provider or our support team!
