    Hi all,

    I am new here and have couple of issues which have been going on for months now and despite contacting "OnePlus" support (who just never seem to know neither do they pass the issue onto technical team who might help, just empty promises) I am still here.

    Issue 1 ---- I can't remove the "Kaspersky Internet Security" despite following all the correct procedures. When I want to remove the app, the phone locks which is because of "administrator Privileges (again when I want to delete those in my 1 plus 7, screen locks)?????

    Issue 2 ---- Clock "Alarm" icon keeps showing despite no alarm set, I have contacted One plus customer support many times and followed the step by step guide to no avail.


    Any kind soul here who can help here will be much appreciated.

    Kay

    Hi there,

    Let's see if this helps

    Issue 1 - Go to settings, security and lockscreen, device admin app, toggle off Kaspersky and try to uninstall.

    Issue 2 - You continue to see alarm icon because there is an app which is using the alarm feature may be a reminder app or health app,etc. You either uninstall that app or if you still want to use that reminder function and don't want to see the alarm icon, go to settings, display, status bar, icon manager and toggle off the alarm option.

    Issue 1: go to settings, security and device administration. disable Kaspersky
    Issue 2: did you clear cache of the clock app? And did you set an alarm und disable it?

    which OxygenOS version are you using?

    Thanks a lot, I managed to uninstall the Kaspersky only by removing the "administrator privileges" of all the apps and then uninstalling the Kaspersky. I reassigned the administrator privileges to other apps. cheers for that [e]1f60a[/e]

    See this as an example. You have dots at right, click on it.
    If you don't, ensure your community app is update to 3.4.6.2.

    it's difficult to know which app is it that I should uninstall. I don't have any special health or reminder apps installed.
