    Okay I have read a dozen forums about screen overlays and the issue with app accessibility. Currently I am still getting an error message about turning OFF my overlays when I try to access several app functions however:

    -- ALL my overlays are off.
    -- I have been restarting my phone after any major change so please no off/on again advice
    -- I do not have a software that affects screen dimness (e.g. LUX) or Phone Cleaning

    What the hell am I doing wrong to still be getting this message?! I'm using an LG G4

    I'm have the same problem. I found the App widget in the apps. When I looked at the permission section. There is non given. I have tried to select the phone for permissions. ( Screen overlay detected). I click change settings and it takes me to draw over other apps section. There is nothing for app widget in that section. have been looking at every u tube video I could find today. Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    You need to find the app acting as the overlay and disable it or uninstall it.
    Common apps are:
    screen dimmers (Lux, Twilight)
    sliding menus and trays
    Facebook bubbles
    multiple apps by Cheetah Mobile

    See if this thread helps any:
