Remove an app from a site

If you no longer need an app on your site, you can remove it through the Site Contents page.

Important:  After you remove an app, you won't be able to recover any data that the app may be storing in the location where it's hosted. If you want to keep this data, you must save it before you remove the app. Go to the app you plan to remove, and manually copy the data to another format (some apps may provide you with a way to export data).

To remove an app, you must have Full Control permissions for a SharePoint site. If you are a Site Owner, you have this permission.
