    @Erie04 Correct me if I'm wrong, but were you also experiencing issues with many anti-malware vendors detecting your inbuilt settings app of Android OS as malicious? If so, let me tell you that you should always stick to one Bitdefender community account rather than creating different ones. This won't help you resolve your issues. And as confirmed earlier, Bitdefender does not target system files of Android OS, whether they are malicious or not. Even if they are malicious, the Android OS will not allow its operating system applications to be uninstalled. Kindly get in touch with your phone manufacturer regarding this issue or the anti-malware companies that are detecting the Android OS files as malicious. Bitdefender has nothing to do with this.
