    Can someone explain this to me? It's popped up when setting up a few different apps. At the moment it is coming up when I try to sync my Fitbit with the app. It prompts me to go into settings and allow the app to run over other apps. I'm not sure what this means, but when I scroll down to Fitbit in the list, it is set to the off position and won't let me change it. I am then lopped back to the Fitbit app, prompted again, etc. I've had many Android phones and I've never encountered this before. It's definitely inhibiting the full use of several apps. Can anyone help? Thanks!

    Yes, I understand that this is for security reasons, to prevent other apps that are using your screen to do nasty things (like capture your input or make you click on unwanted links).
