‘Draw Over Other Apps’ or ‘Display Over Other apps’ is a special permission on Android device which allows one app to appear on the top of other apps. For example, some screen recorders may require this permission in order to record any other apps on your phone or tablet. On the other side, some apps wouldn’t run when an app was running on top of them and generate a “Screen Overlay Detected” error asking you to turn off the screen overlay, draw over or display over other apps.
Android users can follow below steps to enable or disable draw over other apps permissions on an Android device.
Open Settings. Scroll down to Apps. Tap it to open the list of all your apps n the device. Tap the More menu(three dots) at the top right corner and choose Configure apps from the drop-down list.
Select Draw Over Other Apps. Sometimes this option may be in a sub-menu. For example, I have to open the Special access in the Advanced section, then access the Draw over other apps on my LG smartphone.
Now the list of all apps with/without ‘draw over other apps’ permissions will appear. You can tap an app, then choose enable or disable the ‘draw over other apps’ permission on your Android phone.
