    How did you install? Is this a substratum theme? If yes, you should just be able to disable it.

    Is it a standalone app?

    From your home screen go into 'all apps' find the app, long press on it and drag it to app info, you should be able to uninstall from there.
    If that doesn't work, try
    Going to settings>default applications. See if it's there.

    Maybe changing stock navbar settings will bring it back? Go into settings and search for navigation bar, play with it's settings and see if it changes back.

    Another round about way would be to download another navbar app from play store, make it the default, then uninstall it, the phone should ask which one you wanna use now.

    It didn't exactly replace it...or maybe it did cuz both look the same..altho the colour of the navbar did cahnge according to the theme of the app being used..so maybe it did change.... Nevertheless uninstalling it didn't make it revert to the original

    Is this the app you got? https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/app-custom-navigation-bar-customize-t3590967

    My guess is they whatever you downloaded is adding to the navbar settings and not creating a new one.

    Another suggestion to finding what app it is, go into your downloads folder on your phone and look for the apk or do into browser and see the downloads tab there. That should show you where you downloaded it, you will be able to visit the website and see suggestion for removing it
