Adware on my android. Help

I have a Moto X Play, not rooted, and since yesterday my lock screen has been replaced by 'DU Quick Charge' Lock screen which is basically just adware. There is an option to disable it but it doesn't work and it always comes back. I searched about it and it seems there are a few apps which have started pushing this adware. Among all the listed apps I could find on on other forums and websites I only had Xender installed and since then I have removed it. But even after that I still can't get rid of that adware. Please help.

Isn't it showing in installed apps' list ?

If not check if it has itself activated as device administrator.
Not on the apps list neither on the Device administrator list. I don't want to format my phone but looks like that is the only remaining option. Can't believe reputed app developers pull this type of ****

If you have any file manager app which these days support app management, then check if it shows there or not.

One more place you can check is play store list of your installed apps. If it shows there, you can uninstall from there.

If not, remove it from autostart list and reboot phone. Then we can delete directly the folders and file.

I think ES file Explorer is the culprit here. They recently included this DU Quick Charge adware on lockscreens.

Hmm.. seems like it. Any good app for backing up all my apps and data? Like titanium backup but for non rooted phone?
