    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​, and make sure the Flashlight app isn't somehow a Device Administrator. If you see it there, uncheck it, and then try uninstalling again.
