Did you download an app, that requires Device Admin to use it?

If you did, Search for "Admin" in Settings & if you don't want to use the app anymore, then Toggle off Device Admin permission & then you can uninstall it.

If you mean the Secure Folder, then yes it can be used to create a "work profile".

Go to Settings & Search for "Work" & then Click on Work & you should be able to Toggle it OFF if it's On & vice-versa.

Will that disrupt settings outside of the work profile in the secure folder?

No it shouldn't. The purpose of the Secure Folder is to isolate it's contents from the rest of the device.
