    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!
    Transfer all of yoir storage on the internal storage to your sd card i used my lg g stylo and worked like a charm without having to deal with crappy factory reseting

    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.
    Thank youuuu!!!!!!!

    I'm having a similar issue to this with my Galaxy Note 4. When I turned all the options off, it worked fine for all apps except for my screen recorder Game Screen Recorder by DGenius. When I attempt to add recordable apps (so that it isn't just recording the 'desktop' or entire screen), it requests to have screen overlay turned on. Except now that I've turned them all off, I have literally no way to access the screen overlay options at all. I've search checked Display, Screen, and Overlay, Draw, Secondary, Screen Overlay, the last which don't give any options. I've uninstalled all Cheetah apps (Cleanmaster, etc) and that didn't solve the issue. How do I get to the screen overlay options without it being raised as an error, because I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling previous problem apps to get it to pop up again and it hasn't.

    Edit: I have screen shots of the error page, and the Permissions page, but I can't post them to the forum on mobile and have no computer access.

    Yesterday my Samsung Galaxy S5 updated itself and then I started getting the 'screen overlay' prompt and after following the instructions the problem persisted. To make matters much worse, it afftected my UBER and LYFT driver apps that I use for my main source of income. It turned out that it was my 360 security app that was.causing it and once I uninstalled it the problem went away.
