    So I'm new to android and I got a galaxy s4 two days ago. I downloaded the ifonts app yesterday but my sister said she thinks it's malware and the permissions are incredibly fishy. I uninstalled the app and went into the my files and deleted everything that had to do with the ifonts app but the fonts are still in my settings. I want to delete the fonts that I downloaded from the app and just be done with it. Someone please tell me how to do this.

    Also my sister said I should download the antivirus app AVG but I've heard bad things about antivirus apps on Android. Should I download it?

    Other than this issue with the fonts I am in love with Android and I could never go back to Apple. Best decision I've made in a while.

    <Assuming you are unrooted>

    Did you reboot your phone? Usually, an uninstall should have gotten rid of everything.

    Also, from the app description at play store

    (Not sure what the last bit is - do you have individual fonts showing up in your app manager? If so, maybe you have to delete those one by one

    Worst case scenario, you can perform a factory reset, and that should get you phone back to how it was when you got it (it will delete all your data, and all apps that you downloaded - basically back to how it was the day you got the phone)

    Hey!
    If you go to Settings - More - Application Manager - Downloaded and look through for the fonts you have installed. Then just click on them and uninstall.

    Thanks

    I've been using iFont for over a year now. I haven't had any problems. It's not malware. I've used it on my S2 and currently on my Note 3.

    Well, I did have the same problem with iFont. Fortunately my sister likes exploring files and apps, after a whiile she đid those things:
    - First, delete your downloaded font on iFont using iFont.
    - Delete all of its files.
    - Delete iFont
    - Reboot phone.
    This following step is important and I think it might help. Since she did those two steps but that stupid font is not gone, she :
    - Reinstall iFont.
    - Go to "MY" tab in iFont.
    - Choose "My font" or whatever file in that, dont worrry ì there is no font, as long as when you click in it, there will be "recover default font" or what, click it and choose the second option.
    - It will automatically reboot.
    - Font recovered.

    What happens if you downloaded and converted the font through iFont?
