Sad How do I uninstall fonts from my galaxy s4?

So I'm new to android and I got a galaxy s4 two days ago. I downloaded the ifonts app yesterday but my sister said she thinks it's malware and the permissions are incredibly fishy. I uninstalled the app and went into the my files and deleted everything that had to do with the ifonts app but the fonts are still in my settings. I want to delete the fonts that I downloaded from the app and just be done with it. Someone please tell me how to do this.

Also my sister said I should download the antivirus app AVG but I've heard bad things about antivirus apps on Android. Should I download it?

Other than this issue with the fonts I am in love with Android and I could never go back to Apple. Best decision I've made in a while.

<Assuming you are unrooted>

Did you reboot your phone? Usually, an uninstall should have gotten rid of everything.

Also, from the app description at play store


- Go to 'Home > Setting > Application > Manage Application'
- Select font you want to uninstall
- Follow instructions 


(Not sure what the last bit is - do you have individual fonts showing up in your app manager? If so, maybe you have to delete those one by one

Worst case scenario, you can perform a factory reset, and that should get you phone back to how it was when you got it (it will delete all your data, and all apps that you downloaded - basically back to how it was the day you got the phone)

If you go to Settings - More - Application Manager - Downloaded and look through for the fonts you have installed. Then just click on them and uninstall.

I've been using iFont for over a year now. I haven't had any problems. It's not malware. I've used it on my S2 and currently on my Note 3.
