Installed apps from third-party source? Maybe ur phone got hacked. I've read about ransomware that's out there at the moment

It is Xperia XAlert. If you have already granted it device admin rights, there is nothing you can do. Try to uninstall it and see. Or Open it and see if you remember the password so that you can disable it.

i force restarted the ph. then downloaded a task manager and force closed x alert then i was able to access my settings from which i followed these steps

App is good for security but once you activate it and enable password for applications it gives you really bad annoying experience. To fix the issue, please do following:

If you have Screen lock = Pattern then you need to change it to PIN
Go to Settings => Security => Device Administrator and untick X - Alert for XPERIA
Now go to Settings => Apps => All = Select X - Alert for XPERIA
Click on Force Stop and do Clear Cache
thank you all for the feedback bros i'll send everyone cookies in mail :P
