Thanks.  Turning it Off and On was the missing piece of the puzzle.  Cheers

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
