    I installed CM Security and now I can't get into Settings, email, gmail, etc. When my Moto GExt is first turned on, the screen comes up to enter your swipe pattern password. I get to the Home screen, but then any attempt to open an app, the screen comes up again and does not recognize the pattern I enter as my password. At this point, I need to remove all CM Security and associated apps. Thanks.

    clear the cache first (settings-->application manager-->app--> clear cache) and then go to google play and uninstall the app.

    And make sure the app didn't make itself an administrator.

    Also, never install anything from Cheetah Mobile - they have no idea how Android works, they just want you to make money by writing apps that do more harm than good.

    If you're still having problems to uninstall that app you could try a couple of things.

    As Rukbat said maybe it's set as an administrator. Go to settings - security - device administrators and check if it's included in that list. If so uncheck and try to uninstall.

    If you still have problems maybe you'll need to boot your phone into safe mode and then repeat this process. Tell us how it goes.

    The latest version is having a pretty absurd problem (at least for me). It's set as device admin and has "advanced protection" checked in lock options so that that can't be disabled. I try to uncheck advanced protection and what happens? I check that settings page again, and it wasn't disabled. Crazy right?! What should I do?

    First of all Try to change the theme of your smart phone. After that uninstall the "CM Security" App.

    If this doesn't work then follow the given process:
