Display overlay detected – HELP

Hello AndroidPIT community!

My device:

  • Note4 sm-n910f
  • unbrand
  • no root
  • android 6.0.1 (up-to-date)
  • android-security-patch-level: 1 July 2016
  • baseband version n910fxxu1dpb1
  • kernel-version: 3.10.40-7733605, dpi @ swdd6618 # 1, fri jul 1 13:28:42 kst 2016

I have the problem that my apps have little or no permissions more and constantly this message comes when I want to change permissions this:

Display overlay detected

To change this permission setting, you must first
Display overlay over "settings" > "Apps" deactivate.

then only be displayed all my apps that I can turn on or off. I already have all enabled and then disabled - without success, the message will still appear.

I have already googled half the day, but all approaches to solutions did not work for me. I noticed the problem this afternoon for the first time when I wanted to create a wallet app and had to appear to have provided a few privileges. Here it started - I could not change any single authority. this app "boon." is uninstalled, but I do not think that the app was the trigger. after that I said something like googled and in principle it has now verschlimmbessert because now even with chat apps like telegram and disa the privileges completely missing and I can not give back these. not send images possible because the app as No authority has the memory access (to name just one example), it goes on with kaspersky, where permissions are missing, to protect my system and monitor. it comes immmer above-mentioned pop-up.

I've already done:

  • gone to the affected apps to give the permissions manually -> no success -> pop-up appears again to change the trial authorizations
  • gets rebooted -> no success
  • device in safe mode restart and walked one repeated -> no success -> pop-up appears again to change the trial authorizations
  • gets rebooted with mouse buttons and VOL +, HOME, PWR -> cashe wipe performed -> gets restarted -> no success -> pop-up appears again to change the trial authorizations
  • apps, which I thought to be the polluter in the app manager to stop enforced -> no success -> pop-up appears again to change the trial authorizations
  • 2 apps deleted, I installed last, these were within the last 6 days installed (if they could be the offender?) -> no success -> pop-up appears again to change the trial authorizations

slowly I really desperate here. I'm really about any help appreciated!

mfg!

EDIT:. And system scans with Avast antivirus kaspersky od for possible infections are not possible, as this can only be done with correspondingly set permissions.


I had the same problem with me but a simple reboot has helped ...

With you it seems to be solid, as I would put back to factory settings.


As Samsung has the sort menu standard, I do not know why in general: you have in settings ..Apps the overview of permissions, see, turn these to display overlay and this right for all listed apps. Then it should work.

Addendum: This recipe is only useful if one or two apps with this law prevent occasional action. If one removes the right permanently, the app in question is not working wsl.


thanks, I'll try. White a Samsung user how to get there as well?


I also think that a reset is reasonable.

I very much hope that you only use an MSP / AVP on your device and are no different because together, more AVPs can interfere with each other / disrupt and eliminate the protective function or even cause errors when the system scan.
Not infrequently, the whole system can even be put out of action.

Conclusion: Who has not just integrated system side a Mailwarschutzprogramm, can rely on a single Mailwarschutzprogramm.


Hi Ruediger, and thanks for the quick reply. For months I have kaspersky and avast installed in parallel and there has never been any problems or interference between the two programs. basically I understand but what you mean.


ok so I will probably reset. I do the best on the option in the settings or using the key combination - quasi boot menu before the actual?

Where does it now? Sorry, but this self-proclaimed "AVP" or. "MSP" can not the system "to scan", How could that work? We are not in Windows. You can not interfere with each other, but two such apps are doubly useless and more likely to cause any problems individually. I would uninstall all those apps.

@Ralph
Did you happen installed an app that dims the display or a blue light filter?


I had this problem as well and was caused by the app Twilight.
I have this now uninstalled and since no more problems.
Brian's approach is not quite good ... ;-)


I solved the problem! However, on detours ...

yes, I had installed blue light-filtering the app - this, however, was not the originator ...

I had made a wipe and reset to factory settings. then my google account logged samsung account logged in can download apps, etc. while the apps were downloaded from the play goals, I put my phone into the settings. so far so good. than about half of the apps was downloaded, I noticed this overlay errors again.

Now I began to suspect apps to uninstall - again without success. I wondered how long now this trouble occurred about again as I came up with an overlay setting. this is called 'side keypad' in the settings under 'one-handed operation'. tentatively disable this setting and VOILLA it worked !!!!! could be put back cheerful and given privileges without that a pop-up prevents me. the pop-up itself and the forwarding with the buttons 'settings' under the message in the pop-up itself is very misleading and not plausible.

this attitude is doing an overlay, but was always active but hidden (that is, only appears when I type on the edge position with the finger to make the keypad visible). this feature I used, since 1.5 years since I own my Note4 and it has never prepared any difficulties - especially since it's also a feature that is included of house from ... well now goes at least back everything and I'm easier. the 'good' is, now I may not all apps, ringtones and gestures and everything aaahhh set ... : D

Who finds spelling mistakes may keep them.


I have such interference effects with 3rd party apps under LP, although the overlay law is there not explicitly listed. If it was OK with you under LP, is it a bug in the MM update.


Hello, it was not a 3rd party app, but ene standard function of the Note4. what do you mean by lp? and what is a mm-update?

Best regards


He says:
LP = Android 5 Lollipop (not LP, if anyone still know what this is ... ;))
MM = 6 Android Marshmallow


and already makes up meaningful ;)

yes it can of course be due to the update. I guess the 'error' came in the last 2 to 4 weeks with an update as


Here is the solution ... I fooled around now long. Wanted a video in the gallery open, nothing went.
With the stupid consultants from Samsung Chat rumlamentiert who also knew nothing.

As follows:

If an app requests the disable DISPLAY OVERLAY, then click on the link settings>take out all the hooks>Click 3 points above right>View System Applications>also there take out all the hooks>then back to the one app (Application Manager) which have permissions wants>Click this app>Click Permissions and enable the individual hooks

The last update has the well-brought with it.

Since you have now disables all other apps before, it uses then nothing in settings> application Manager>Reset app preset to press, or to activate, because then everything starts from scratch and you should display overlay again turn off.

Better to activate every single app that claims to have granted permission. Scheiss new update!
I hope I could help. I myself definitely.

LG, JL

Hello Alberto Einstein, this is exactly I also tried, but it did not work.


I also noted that the problem occurs when a SNOTE note is minimized and as a kind of widget remains in the display (for example, when you minimize a note to do some research, etc.).

Vg


2 days working with permissions enziehen, the default procedure 2 times reset.
It struck me that the problem appears to me Nadem I actively have the Einhandbedinung lateral field.


In the secure mode boot and app give allowances needed for me until now the best temporary solution.
In my S6 Theme and keyboard while but are set to default.
Fortunately, it does not come with any new app for this problem ...
