A ton of different software does that there is even Android Device Manager which comes preinstalled on most devices. There is Lookout Prey there is Avast: Cant remember the name of it, Bitdefender makes one and Eset does also I think... There are others but I've heard good things about those. Can't say I've always used common sense
Yeah common sense 100% but I am also looking for a good package that allows phone retrieval or wipe in case it's lost.
Thanks for the info yeah lookout is well sort of crappy: a family member of mine tested it and his analysis was as follows. The sw seemed to work sometimes well most of the time, but if I remember correctly It doesn't take logs of its locations so finding where you may have dropped it or lost it is impossible if the phone is dead which is sort of well pointless for recovery.Adguard premium is doesn't have that features, it's just an add-on but works to block ads/etc which in turn saves bandwidth. It's not a full suite security package.
Umm is your phone rooted? Iif its rooted just use titanium backup or root uninstaller. Or any su removal tool. If you don't feel like buying anything just use an su file explorer and remove it.My T-Mobile S5 came with pre-installed Lookout Mobile Security trail, and it seem like I can't uninstalled it, but rather disable it. Any idea how I can uninstall it?

If I remember correctly rooting the S5 was easy but the recovery was a hassle... Not sure if T-mobile had an encrypted bootloader or not I know Verizon and AT&T do on the S5. If you're not rooted and its a system app I don't think you can remove it actually. The only option is to do what you're currently doing and block or freeze them with debloating apps. You could always root it real quick with a temp root and uninstall what you want then remove the temp root: just a thought.
in the latest Android , you should have the option to Lock/Erase your device (option located generally in Settings > Security > Device Administrators)
