Settings Locked with 360 Security AppLock:
This will only work if Unknown sources option is enabled, Settings is locked so you can’t access App (Application) Manager and can’t uninstall the 360 Security AppLock. In this situation, a third party uninstaller app can help you. You can download an app uninstaller program from Google Play Store eg: Easy Uninstaller or Clean Master. Or if you have also locked Google Play Store with AppLock then download it with third-party App Store: eg: Mobogenie, 9Apps and Android Mirror because Unknown sources option available in the Settings and your settings are already locked with AppLock then download it from third-party Apps store:
- Download Easy Uninstaller from third Party Source: >>Click here to go<<.
- Download Clean Master from Mobogenie store: >>Click here to go<<.
After download & install, open Easy Uninstaller or Clean Master and uninstall 360 Security App. It will solve your problem easily.

- If you are unable to unlock the smartphone’s settings and can’t install Easy Uninstaller and Clean Master app, then the only option remains that is Factory hard reset.
