    Great information. Turned on the developer options but was no option to turn over screen overlays. CM is not installed. I did just go to Application PopUps, etc settings and turned them all off. I received no more errors regarding screen overlays.

    After the LG G4 update on Friday I had this issue with several apps. I spent 3 hours at the verizon store today luckily with a very patient person. He finally found that the clean master app was the problem. After hours of trying to fix it and being on the phone with several different customer support people he saw the clean master and said I bet this caused a virus. He deleted it and sure enough, my pictures, calendar and mail were working correctly. They were not opening and saying that I hate overlays being detected. I would try and fix it and it would just keep looping back to the overlay detected screen. If you have a cleaning app delete it, restart your phone and see if everything works again.
    I uninstalled clean master also and it took care of my problem with the overlay. Many thanx

    Somehow I've managed to get two screen overlays on my phone. They are smaller semi-grayed out copies of the real screen. There is also a thin white line at the top of the screen telling the sizes of the overlays. I have uninstalled almost every app on my phone even though I don't have anything that I installed right before this happened. I have also gone through almost every setting (I say almost because there's always one more on this phone not because I didn't get every last one I know about.)
    I'm going in for a knee replacement on Monday and then to rehap and I'd like to have a USABLE phone if they let me have it - they will at rehap at least (I think).
    Anyone know how I shot myself in the foot?

    Thanks!
    Hey I've been having this problem for weeks with only quick fixes.I found that Uninstaller during battery or battery doctor and 360 security and cm locker did the job!! Cm locker was hidden and I had to search hard but now my phone works fine!! YouTube has some good fixes to.

    Hello,
    This overlay problem happen to me also after updating my phone to android 6.0. However I resolved this issue. Follow these steps to solve.
    1. Goto settings
    2. Applications->advanced->draw over other apps
    3. Then what you have to do is.. in some mobiles there is an option when u click on below or the top corner list. That option is 'open system processes'.
    4. Select that , now disable the overlay for all the apps shown.
    5. Now goto whatsapp or which application that asked for turn off overlay.

    Now u can enable the storage,camera,contacts and all.

    And onemore thing after giving permissions for your app. Come back to the overlay window and enable all the necessary apps ..remember one thing now dont click on the reset option... if u do that again u have to follow from beginning.
    If u find it useful please let me know.
    Thanq

    I have so edge and am also having overlay issues. I've never had clean master in my phone. I was not able to view pdf docs using Hancom emailed to me so installed Google pdf as a work around. I can't use any apps I download that want to use my current location like weather or Uber. I've been searching on all the online forums and nothing. I've tried turning developer options on and off and I uninstalled avast mobile cleanup just in case.
    I guess I'll have to go to see the Samsung people at best buy to get this issue solved. What a pain in the rear!

    Dear Amit. I followed your advice and I ended up deleting all my CM apps. That fixed everything. I cannot believe the solution was so easy. Thank you so much for sharing and ultimately helping a lot people. I hope everyone follows your advice. Again, thank you so much.

    With my new G7 I uninstalled FB messenger and that helped. BUT when I reinstalled it I have again problems (and no cl or developer tricks helped).

    I am wondering if by transferring my apps from one phone to the other by special cable if that is the problem. Do i need to uninstall FB and more and then re install fresh copies? ...

    thank you, this was my same predicament, however finally finding the developer options and turning them off, overlays are still being detected...completely lost now

    definitely turn off and uninstall any app killer or booster you may have downloaded. Android is now made with a built in safe software..
    Hope this helps. Hope you have the problem fixed. I was just barely able to figure mine out. I had the du battery booster. Uninstalled, restarted my phone and all my application permissions are now accessible. Good luck

    I uninstalled the DU Battery Saver and DU Speed Booster & Cleaner apps and rebooted my phone and it worked. I have a Samsung Galaxy S6.

    This is exactly how it goes to fix screen overlay on my s6. After you find developer options you will find the on/off toggle for screen overlay. Turn off overlay and don't forget to turn off developer options before you leave the screen. Hope it helps. Thanks Mike.

    I had to uninstall DU booster. Any app you use to save energy, speed up your phone or clean trash will cause you to keep getting that message although you turned off over lay on apps in settings.
