A

Your Android device have 2 certificate stores:

1. "System" Certificate Store - Place to store all Trusted CA Certificates that are pre-installed on your device as part of the Android system.

You can not add or remove certificates in the "System" store. But you can disable or enable certificates in the "System" store.

For example, "DigiCert" is a trusted CA certificate located in the "System" store. You can enable or disable it.

2. "User" Certificate Store - Place to store all certificates installed by yourself. They can be trusted CA certificates or personal certificates.

You can add or remove certificates in the "User" store.

For example, if you install your Wi-Fi access certificate, it will go into the "User"" store. You can remove it any time.
