Hi there!

I've installed Whatsapp through an .apk file from official site. Since I knew Mitakuuluu I've installed it too and it might cause some "interferences" between them so I want to uninstall Whatsapp properly. How can I do that?

Thanks a lot.

Same way you would uninstall a sailfishos app. Long press the app icon in the app "drawer" Then press the little x on the icon.

It was that easy. I was wondering something like "open a terminal and do...". My fault: I'll do my homework. Thanks a lot. :-)

Use apkd-uninstall from the terminal.

What about apks that don't have an icon, such as "Whatsapp wallpapers"?
