    1. Did it come preinstalled? If so, then you most likely can’t remove it completely, because it’s bloatware. You could probably disable it by going to the App Manager, selecting 360 Security, and tapping Disable.

      If you installed it yourself, then you might have to go to Settings>Security>Device Administrators​, uncheck 360 Security first, then go uninstall it.


      Boot your phone in safe mode and check if you can access your settings and uninstall completely that app.
