    Earlier OnePlus was a high rated brand for me because of customers could be assured to not get annoying bloatware preinstalled in their devices. There was always a possibility to disable or even uninstall unecessary and unwanted apps. Extended individual customisation was characteristic for Oxygen OS compared to other brands.
    And now this is coming without any possibility to at least disable it... Come on OnePlus, many of us have been devoted customers for a lot of earlier versions of your phones ! Let us at least disable the Zen Mode feature.

    Because of this intrusive app being forced onto my phone, I will not be buying any more OnePlus products.

    Give me an option to remove or turn off this bullshit app immediately, kthxplox!

    Do you think I'm five? I'm perfectly capable deciding my usage myself. I do NOT appreciate having some stupid app tell me I need to put my phone off, and give me "achievements" for doing so!

    Can't uninstall or disable. Can't restrict permissions. Drains 5% of my battery every day. Can't control notifications.

    Really pisses me off!

    And now the app store says this garbage is no longer compatible with my device, but it's still on it, still not removable and still using data and battery

    there needs to be a way to remove this garbage. I was on road trip that was longer than 3 hours and this stupid app gives me a notification that I've been on the phone for more than 2 hours. yeah, no shit, I'm using my GPS.

    Please add me to the list of people who hate this app and the inability to remove it. Get it off. A star on playstore and if you can't get the chance to uninstall this garbage soon, I think I'll change the operating system, since LineageOs doesn't have these big problems

    Woke up this morning to zen mode notifications telling me to take a break from my phone. Can't disable it, uninstall it... It's crap bloatware like this in other manufacturers phones that made people flock to OnePlus and made you successful. Please dont start locking in pointless crap into updates... I'll just stop buying OnePlus.

    With the way that this app works, and how it can't be barred from accessing the internet, this goes beyond bloatware. This looks like spyware to me.

    Hello, I use my OP at work, I'm always on the road and I listen to the radio on my smartphone using bluetooth. And I find that zen mode notifications are annoying, I would like to disable or uninstall this option, I do not use it at all. Thank you.

    I just received the notification too. I was just able to remove Zen Mode. Settings>Apps & Notifications>Zen Mode>Store App Details>Uninstall (in the Google Play Store). It doesn't appear in my app drawer. Good Luck. I have a OP7Pro

    Just hit 3 dots and select "system apps", boom, Zen Mode is there ;) As OS App.

    BTW. After updating to A10 I'm still getting notifications from Zen Mode, also when I unchecked notification for this bloatware :/ Simply when Navi in use, this make me crazy since firs day with this app...

    YUP, Its there! I was able to find this: "Put the Zen widget on the home screen. Select it. There's a gear in the top right for settings. You can turn off the notifications." I just did it and I'll report back to see if I get a notification. It won't be until I'm at home tonight when I can use my phone for 2 hours.
