The easiest way to disable the protection is to pinch the home screen with two fingers and find the “Settings“ button that appears as a result.
This will take you to the Home screen settings;
The only thing left to do is to move the “Lock home screen layout“ toggle switch to the “Off“ position.
Now go to the home screen and move the icon to the selected position - everything should work. If you know an easier way to solve this, please share your experience with us in the Comments section below.
