I am also facing the same issue of blue box on lock screen. I am also unable to login and enabling the Emergency Mode.

Performing these steps:

 

Click on Emergency Mode,

Check the Terms & Condition box,

but unable to click on Agree button. When box come to Agree / Disagree button, its not working.

 

Is there any other way to solve this issue ? or how may i click on agree button in terms and conditions menu from any other way.

I really appreciate your positive response on it.

Please change the solution to a real solution, not just a, "let's forget it ever happened and with everything you ever put on the phone" solution.

 

Tripple click the home button. If this does not fix it, go into setting by swiping from the top of the screen down, tap on the gear icon, scroll down to "Accessibility" then look for "Direct access" in this menu it should say how you can enable these assistant features. My particular setting was toggled on, with "Universal switch" as the enabbler/disabler.

The volume Up and power button method didn't work for me. 

However I was able to disable the Unisversal Swith simply by asking bixby to do it. (Long Press on the bixby button and say Disable Universal Switch). That worked instantly!
