Why does my phone turn off during a call when I cover the top of my phone?

This gets extremely annoying when I am on the phone and try to use my phone at the same time. How do I turn this off?

Hi, if you can make a account here , me or other members be glad to help you out. It's your proximity sensor.

Welcome to Android Central! If you're on a call and want to use another app at the same time, turn on speakerphone first. That should disable the proximity sensor function.
