    The lack of the option to uninstall usually means that it a system app and you must root to remove it. Is your objection to the app that you want to free up some space or that it causes problems?

    You should be able to simply disable and/or hide it.

    Is it set as an administrator? I think you need to remove it from there before you uninstall it. If it gives you problems removing admin rights, reboot into safe mode.

    Did you get this from the Play store or did you get it someplace else?

    Good to here. I killed the links so someone else doesn't inadvertently install the app.

    You might want to do some damage control by changing password for accounts you've used since the hacked app was installed. No telling what it was doing in the background.
