# App Installation
Notes before Installing Apps
Before installing, we recommend creating a backup copy of the theme. Creating a backup allows you to quickly and easily return the theme to a previous point in time.
Visit: Duplicating Themes for detailed instructions.
Step 1: Go to the App Store, and choose the app you’d like to install.
Step 2: Click the Add App button.
Step 3: Log into the App Store.
Step 4: Confirm App installation by click Install App.
Step 5: Use the app! Your newly installed app will live in the App section of your Shopify Admin.

- they are having trouble using the app.
We’re here to help!
# 2. How do I remove the app?
We understand ACF may not be the perfect fit for every store. If you have decided that our app is not for you and are sure you want to uninstall, follow these instructions:
From “Shopify Admin”, select Apps.
Locate the App you want to uninstall (Advanced Custom Field)
Select the Remove button.
Please tell us your FEEDBACK (Optional)
Finally, click Delete button.
# 3. How do I stop being charged for the app?
When removed from the store, access to the app and monthly billing stops immediately.
# 4. Will all metafields created by ACF also be removed?
No, uninstalling ACF does not remove metafields created by ACF itself.
# 5. Liquid code in Usage Examples
If you followed our usage examples and applied any of them to your theme files, you will have to manually remove any additional liquid code you added to your theme files.
Please note that ACF is not authorized to make any changes to your theme source code, its only purpose is to create metafields, which are stored on Shopify server.
