I found a post which suggested turning the Android off and re-starting it.
Then in Settings | My Device A Safety assistance the switch was enabled.
I have the opposite problem.
I have set up Safety assistance, but it is too easy to trigger accidentally so I want to turn it off for normal activities and turn it on when travelling or doing anything risky.
However the On/Off switch is disabled.
How can I turn this feature on and off when required
You can have the same functionality on any Android, take a look here ... http://tiny.cc/PanicCamHome
