    Ever since my samsung galaxy s6 got an update, I've been spammed with nothing but screen overlay messages and warnings. Anytime I try to open an app that requires certain permissions the screen overlay message appears. It would appear that my messaging apps have permission to appear over other apps. This problem only seems to happens with my messaging app as well as the default messaging app. However, when I turn off these permissions the messaging apps won't launch and just say "error app failed to launch." If someone could please help me with this, I'd be very grateful.

    Welcome to the forums. There are several threads about this same problem. This is one then.

    Odd "screen overlay" pop up shows up often with some apps, what is it and how to properly select it?
