    Default Re: having trouble uninstalling an app

    Welcome to Android Central! What happens when you tap the Uninstall button? Do you get any error message? Or does nothing happen?

    Go to Settings>Security>Device Administrators‚Äč, and make sure the Flashlight app isn't somehow a Device Administrator. If you see it there, uncheck it, and then try uninstalling again.


    IN CASE YOU'RE WONDERING, I'll be on vacation from 7/27 to 8/13, with only intermittent web access. So if you don't see me around much, don't worry, I didn't defect to another site or anything like that.
