Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

On your phone, you should see the ROKU app (don't open it)

Hold down your finger on the app and it should give you the option to delete it

Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

Make sure that you are actually turning it off and not just putting it onto a black screen.

Hold down the power button for 20 seconds and select the power off option.

What does safe mode mean I have never seen this
Thank you for your patience!
Android Device Expert: Harry, IT replied 7 months ago

Safe mode is a toned down operating system.

Restarting your phone again should remove it
