I installed a security app on my Samsung phone and it blocks the device from going to Odin mode (bootloader) so I can not update the software. I can not remove this app because it is a device administrator. Also when I navigate to device administartors in Settings I can not deactivate it (deactivate button is grayed out). Can anyone help me and suggest any idea on how to get rid of this app?

  • If you installed from Play Store, go to play store and deactivate and uninstall – beeshyams Feb 9 '17 at 8:50
