(4) remove ContactShip IDs

Where to tap
Premium Popup

To identify which contact in your local address book belongs to which contact inside the ContactShip app, the app adds a unique identifier (ContactShip ID) to each contact in your local address book. If you ever want to remove ContactShip app from your device you have the posibility to remove this identifier with this button. Tab on "remove" and on "remove" again

If you remove identifier from your Google Contacts or contacts from other online or exchange accounts there will be a longer sync afterwards through those accounts.

If you remove the identifier from your contacts they still remain inside the ContactShip app, but changes will no longer be transferred to the corresponding local contact. If you start another import of your contacts afterwards, the system will create duplicates within the ContactShip app.

Whenever you create a new contact in the ContactShip app, a contact is created in your local address book with a ContactShip ID.
