    I am getting an "Apps with permission" page popping up numerous times a day on a Galaxy S5....
    At the top of the screen it says "Apps with permission". Below that it says "Change system settings" and has an Off/On button to the right. Below that line, it says "Select which apps can change system settings, such as turning Bluetooth on or off". Regardless of whether the button is set to On or Off, the pop up page appears when using any app. I have gone into Application Manager and checked/confirmed permissions on various apps - that has not helped eliminate the pop up. This situation started just a few days ago - it had not happened in 4 years of using this phone. How do I get rid of it?

    I am getting the exact same problem. It began only a few days ago. If you notice, it does not happen when you have the volume control all the way down. As soon as the volume is turned up, the notices begin. I tried running in safe mode (no third party apps) and the problem doesn't appear. That's all the info I have so far. I'm at the end of my troubleshooting ability unless I begin removing apps one at a time.

    Welcome to the forums. Can you post a screenshot with that pop up? It's possible that it's caused by an app that you downloaded. What do you see if you open the recent apps/multitasking right after the pop up shows up?

    See this guide for possible solutions.

    Yes, the screenshot was posted correctly. It looks like a system message by the fact that it didn't occur while in safe mode makes me think that the culprit is an app that you downloaded.

    Tap the multitasking button when it shows up, take a screenshot a post it here.

    Long press that small cog icon, tap "i" (info) and see which app it opens.

    Yup, not much help there, that's the system app.

    Which phone do you have?

    Not sure what else to suggest. It's possible that it's caused by a bug specific to the S5, but the safe mode left me unsure. You could try enabling the Developer Options and check your running services, as explained in that guide I linked above.

    The S5 forum is not very active but I could move this thread there if you both agree.

    Done. Let's see if we can get feedback from the owners.

    Same here. It's like some update Google (Android), Samsung or Verizon pushed has broken the system for S5 users. PLEASE help us. This is a good phone that is working fine, does not need replacing, except that the latest software push has apparently broken it, enough to be really annoying but not impossible to use. If this is not solved, I am leaving both Verizon and Samsung on my next "forced upgrade."

    I seem to be having this also on my Note 4 -- I did NOT do any system updates lately.
    MINE says "Phone Settings" at the top, and then if I click the icon to see what is causing it, I get an APP INFO window.
    If I try to force stop it, the window goes away, but it doesn't die.
    This just started a few days ago.

    Which app info window do you get? A system app or one that you downloaded?

    I have a Samsung S5 and have also recently started having this problem in the past couple of weeks. Haven't done any system updates, haven't installed any new apps. I checked the Running Processes in Developer Options and there doesn't appear to be anything unusual there. Am very interested in any possible solutions as this is driving me crazy! I have also noticed that this does not occur when the volume is turned all the way down.

    and it opens the app info window:

    You can't force stop that App info. It just kills the window but the "Phone settings" is still active. Killing that in the task manager, and it's back in a few minutes. I haven't gone the "turn off the sound" route because I want this gone.
    Also, I notice that if my alarm goes off, the Phone Settings screen pops up instead of the screen to dismiss the alarm.

    I enabled dev options, and looked at running services,but nothing outstanding there...

    I just tested mine by setting an alarm to see if it does the same, and yep, no alarm sound, just that screen popping up again. Also, nothing unusual in running services here either.

    It's definitely tied to sound -- if you adjust the volume, it also pops up.

    When you see the Phone Settings screen, enable it (slide the Off button to the right, so it turns On). Then you'll see the app asking for permissions.

    Then make sure that you want to give thar app any permissions - that screen is one way Android keeps viruses from doing whatever they want. But if it's an app you want changing things, give it permission.
