"Activate Device Administrator"?

Was trying to set up work email and thought I finally got it.... now I have a screen that says "Activate Device Administrator?" and it says this will allow the "administrator" to reset my phone, clear all data, etc.  This is scary!  I can't get out of it by clicking the "Cancel" button.  Can you tell me how to get this off my phone or what to do?  I don't HAVE to have my work email on my phone so I'd really like to undo whatever I just did! 

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Hey Tam314, no need to be scared! You're the "Device Administrator" for your phone. So go ahead and complete the setup and you can begin receiving your work email. Have a great day.
