Hi guys,

 

Even I was having this scree overlay problem, for me the below steps worked

 

1. Keep wide touch Disabled.

 Or

2. Before installing any app disable wide touch , then open the app that you just installed, give permissions for the app, after that you can again enable wide touch,

The solution is go to settings>apps>settings then go to draw over other apps.

Open it even though show system and turn off all the permission and give the permission through the application and it will work properly

Usually, this is caused by the use of a floating app or an app which tend to change background color or something.

 

For Most Android Phone users:

 

  • Open the Settings
  • Then Applications > Application manager
  • Press on More > Apps that can appear on top

If you find an app with a bubble, display screen overlay. If an app adjusts your phone’s brightness, disable screen overlay option on those apps as well. Point is, you have to figure out the culprit app and disable screen overlay.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO OVERCOME THE ISSUE BY TURNING OFF ALL THE APPS  in "DRAW OVER OTHER APPS" and then you can give permission sto the app you wish or else press the power button and click on power off until u see a message called safe modethen click ok....we can give permissions to apps in safe mode as all third party apps will be disabled ....this all will not work until you uninstall the app which is causing the error screen overlay detected......in my case the widget in uc browser caused the error...I removed it (turned off thewidget )...then I was able to give permissions to the apps..if all these don't work  change into guest mode or new user but u will not be able to make calls here but u can give permissions
