Could a Third-Party App Really Impact System Settings?

So we have seen this query pop up many times in the past as to whether or not a third-party app could really have an adverse impact on the system settings of your device. Well, the answer is in the affirmative. Infact, in most cases, it’s actually a third-party app that comes out to be the culprit with regards to the system apps or processes not working in the backend.

From the device slowing down to facing frequent crashes, from the device overheating to excessive battery drainage, or one or many system processes not functioning along the expected lines, each of these issues could stem from a third-party app, usually the ones that have been sideloaded from a third-party app instead of being directly installed from the Play Store.

Moreover, if you have started facing the issue right after installing an app, then it’s quite along the obvious lines that the culprit is that app itself. However, you might not always be that lucky. In some cases, the issue might arise a couple of days later after installing the concerned app. In such cases, you will have to keep on deleting individual apps until the issue gets rectified. When that happens, then the last installed app is your culprit.

Apart from that, you should always keep track of the likes of Reddit and X [formerly Twitter] as users usually share their displeasure over those platforms. More importantly, you’ll be able to get hold of some crucial information about the issue, and workarounds that could be implemented to minimize the impact of that problem.

Moreover, it will also give you a sense of security that you are not the only one getting bugged by this issue, many others are also sailing in the same boat. The more the reports flooding these forums, the quicker it will be in the eyes of the developers, and the faster will the patch be rolled out. So it’s a win-win situation for all the users involved.
