uninstalling safe family LG V40


I recently bought a new LG V40ThinQ Smartphone. Apparently it had the Safe Family App pre-installed. I neither need nor want that App, but unfortunately I can't find a way to uninstall it. I'd appreciate a step-by-step guide that works for this phone https://tutuappx.com/.
