    You need to turn off the app that is acting as the overlay. This is a potential security problem.
    Usually it is your app that dims the screen, like Lux or Twilight.
    Facebook Messenger "bubbles" have been known to cause it.

    I have found an error several times already which reads:

    "Screen Overlay detected" to change this permission setting, you first have to turn off the screen overlay from Settings > Apps

    try to download "Alert Window Checker" and " Install Button Unlocker ". I did this about a minute ago and Yes Problem Solve ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜†
