'Pink' styling issues on Android

I am seeing some strange styling effects on Android, my switches are a pink colour when toggled on - same issue as https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/70907/forms-switch-doesnt-look-like-i-expected-on-android.
I applied an Effect to the switches to manually fix the colour but now I notice that the same pink is on the underline and blinking cursor on Edit boxes + the selected item in a List is bright orange (perhaps the same problem?). I installed the Light theme and it made no difference to this.

I read on another post that this is caused by Material Design implementation which is fine and well but surely it isn't right for apps to have this strange styling by default? Ando how do I remedy, must I add effects to every control has this issue?

    Wow, is no none else seeing this behaviour? My app is bog standard and has this weird styling, is there some trick I am missing to sort this out?

    In your Android-project, under Resources/values/styles.xml, is there any pink-references there (check the hex codes)

    I got a similar problem with the menu items within the NavigationView control. On Android O, the menu items appear with a pink text color, whereas they were gray/black on previous Android versions.

    @BendikNesbo has the correct answer. Look under your Android Project Resources>values>styles.xml
    This was the issue with my project.

    #FF4081 FF4081 is pink.
