I am really stressed out with my GSamsung S7, Every app i have, I cant give permission to access my phone, it keeps saying to change this permission setting, you have to turn off screen overlay from settings, which i keep doing both ways, either turn them all off, or turn them all on, or doing them one by one, nothing is working. Help, please. I am thinking about resetting the phone, but dont really want to, unless a last resort. thanks

    Are you using any apps that utilize the screen overlay feature? Something like screen filters (Screen Filter, Twilight etc).

  • Apps like Facebook Messenger (which draws over the screen to enable chat heads) will also cause this.
