One of my employers sent me this screenshot from his AT&T Samsung Galaxy S6 phone. It shows an overlay over the home screen with a button in the upper-right (looks like a Wii Remote in a circle button).

This button has been appearing on his phone at night sometimes, and when it is present, he cannot use anything on his phone.

Sorry for the hearsay explanation, but I've got very little information to go on. I cannot give a better explanation of the symptoms, as I have not been present when they have been occurring. At least I have the attached screenshot. ;-)

This is a known issue affecting many users and the culprit is an app called Peel Smart Remote. Tell him to search for this app in the app manager and disable it.
