    Welcome.

    Note that @chanchan05 has helped, months ago. If that method hasn’t worked for you - and you haven’t told us whether you’ve tried it, but presumably you must have done - there’s nothing you can do.

    Maybe there's a reason why IT admin's blocking the installation. Have you considered that?

    Could be Google play protect, or lookout, go to Google play store then settings, then play protect menu then turn both settings off, next look for lookout in the settings, if lookut is there you can usually disable it, then try to install the apk

    The OP and the followup poster specifically mention that the installation is "blocked by your IT admin," which wouldn't be Google Play Protect. Since these phones clearly have some kind of device management software installed (since they're apparently company phones), it's unlikely that installing apks will work either.

    However i think if it is a company phone, then you probably shouldn't be trying to install apps on anyways, android phones aren't very expensive anymore, if you really need a cheap android just look on ebay and get a older version, 5.0 and 6.0 are still pretty much reliable, although you might have a few apps that can't run on older devices, but sometimes you can just get older versions of the apps and run them just fine, i recently got a android from ebay for 20 dollars, and it works great
