Contradictory to public apps, which could work with many different stores and can easily be found on Shopify App Store, private apps are exclusively built to serve the need of your Shopify store. Private apps could be used for a variety of purposes, including adding more features to your store, accessing store’s data directly via Shopify’s APIs, or extending your Shopify store to other platforms via custom storefronts. For stores on the trial plan, Shopify restricts the number of private apps store owner could create to five. Other than that, the number of private apps you could create is unlimited. We’ve covered how to uninstall a public app already, this post is going to be about how to delete a private app.

Private apps are made only for one store and by a developer that you trust. How you delete a public app is also a little bit different from how you delete a private app. Before authenticating your private app to Shopify, you first need to generate the credentials that are required from the Shopify store you want to have your app connected with.
