I have a Samsung Galaxy A5[18] running Android 4.4.4. Every time I install a new app this dialog comes up:

enter image description here

Is there any way to disable this feature?

I'm doing app development so I have to install my development app hundreds of times a day, making this dialog extremely annoying.

    If you've got to install your test-app hundreds of times a day, I wonder you are not using adb install for that. No popups at all, just "silently" installs the app and gives feedback on the commandline ("success" or "fail"). – Izzy Sep 5 '15 at 10:17
  • I am using adb install. This dialog pops up regardless of how the app is installed. – My other car is a cadr Sep 5 '15 at 10:19
  • Uh? Never heard such. And I use adb install a lot, on multiple devices. Maybe you can find out what app that is, and simply disable it when not wanted? After all, built-in permission management like that didn't come with Kitkat, which makes me assume a "3rd party" or vendor-specific app here (as the text reads a little strange: is "Hello scaloid! for sbt" the name of the app you install?). – Izzy Sep 5 '15 at 10:36
  • I've never heard of such a thing either until I got this phone. Is this some crapware that all Samsung phones come with? I can't even find the name of this app. All I know is that it's shipped with the phone and can't be removed. Yes, "Hello scaloid! for sbt" is my test app. – My other car is a cadr Sep 5 '15 at 10:47

    When that window pops-up again do adb shell dumpsys activity | grep "Recent #0:" or adb shell dumpsys activity | grep "mFocusedActivity". You would see the package name of the application launching that window. It seems to be Android Lollipop as per screenshot, so you can simply go to Settings -> Apps and look for that app corresponding to the package name. – Firelord Sep 5 '15 at 14:19
