Re: Screen Overlay

Hi chrisjonesey,

 

I don't have an S6 so can't offer my personal experience (another member might). However Google may be your best friend here.

Does this page help: http://www.androidauthority.com/community/threads/screen-overlay-detached-turn-off-to-allow-permissi...

It seems that some Apps (noticeably CM Clean Master and Anti Virus) may be causing your problem.

Re: Screen Overlay

Hi chrisjonesey,

 

from Google:

  • Open Settings > Apps.
  • Tap the Gear icon on the top right of the Settings page.
  • Scroll down and tap “Special Access”
  • Tap “Draw over other apps” and toggle apps in the list.

 Or if you say what device you are using a more detailed answer may be available e.g : Samsung Galaxy S7
