It's so unnecessary and annoying. Like why would they touch brand new phone to preinstall bookmarks that you can't delete !?
Does anyone know how to delete them ? I'm using the pixel4
Yeah I was surprised that they would let the carriers touch the phone. The one thing that Google is known for is no bloatware and garbage like this I also had the Fido app pre-installed but I can delete it
Welcome to the community!
You should note that it might not have mattered where you purchased your phone. Many android phones (most notably Samsung) undergo a process of SIM-profiling when a SIM is first inserted into the device.
Generally, I did not think that Google phones underwent SIM-profiling as well. However, it's possible those bookmarks were included during the installation of the carrier software environment in a similar process. That same process would have occurred if any of the other Canadian provider SIMs were first used in the phone. In those situations, other bookmarks would have likely been included.
Hope this helps 😀
