    This has happened since I bought the phone, 4 or 5 months ago. I have several screenshots as it has been going crazy today.

    Welcome.

    Swipe up from there. Interesting things may happen.

    Thank you for answering so quickly. I have tried multiple times swiping up from the epicenter to below it, while it was happening, and get no interaction with it, just the apps it is overlayed on. It happens while doing any other application as far as I can tell. It has happened a dozen times or more since I started this reply.

    It may be something to do with the stock launcher, but I'm not familiar with Alcatel phones so I don't know. It may be something you could disable in Settings, Home Screen. If not, I guess you could try downloading a different launcher from the Play Store, if only as a diagnostic.
    I'll pass this to other team members, who may recognise it.

    Welcome to the forums. It could be some stock feature in your launcher, an accessibility option or an overlay from a third party app that you downloaded. What happens if you swipe up from the top center of it?

    What Android version are you using? See if you can check which apps have the 'draw over other apps' permission enabled.

    Can't find the option to sort by that permission. It isn't on the list of other permissions.

    I tried one, but was bombarded with adds. The weird part is the behavior has slowed considerably after I uninstalled the other launcher.

    Have you tried under special access? You can also use the search option in the settings and type 'draw', 'over apps' or any similar combination.
