|Turn OFF Screen Overlay Detected On Android|
MEANING of Screen Overlay Detected Feature On Android
Screen Overlay Detected is a very annoying error which in most cases, appears mostly on the Marshmallow Version Of Android. Anything a new app is been installed or launched on in the above mention version of android several permissions like storage, camera, contacts, and some others must be granted in other for certain apps to function well. But while app permissions are been granted, a sudden message pops up on the screen(I.e if the screen overlay feature is turned on in some apps).
REASON WHY IT APPEARS(Screen Overlay Detected)
These popups may appear as a result of the Android version you are using.
It is most likely to appear whenever you install a new app on your Marshmallow Version Of Android after permissions like contacts, storage, etc are being granted.
SCREEN OVERLAY DETECTED Appears On Certain Devices Not All
Screen overlay detected only appears on Marshmallow upgraded Android versions such as Tecno, Samsung, Lenovo, LG, etc. If it currently displays on your device then that android version is part of it.
