The guide above helps you relieve the pain and teaches you how you can install apps from outside the Play Store on your device. Verizon referred me to Samsung but they could not diagnose the issue unless I could allow unknown sources. I can see why some would like Google Services installed. I just gave both these methods a try, and it was very hit and miss—mainly miss. Hi uliwooly, thanks for your quick response. Another article says go to 'settings' then 'apps' then push the 3 dots in top right corner, then 'special access', then 'install unknown apps'. Im on developer channel so unsure what I have to do to be able to access this? Doing so will give you the ability to manually install the application also known as sideloading if that is something you want to do.
When you google the problem it tells you to go to 'settings' and then 'lock screen and security' and then to check the option to 'allow downloads from unknown sources'. I would not be as concerned except this is a replacement phone and I know for a fact that the same apps installed fine on my last identical phone. I am adding my email here due to the page stating emails would not be displayed. The other thing is in settings it says there is updated firmware available and after I download it always comes up with an error. .
You can get this done from within the settings too. Chrome browser will be launched. This new feature lets us have more flexibility over which apps need permission and which do not. I have the allow unknown sources option enabled but still no such luck. Hi, I have just got a Samsung S8 phone. With the Android Oreo, installation of apps from Unknown sources has now been replaced with a different option altogether.
So please, just be aware of the risks involved when sideloading an application from an unreputable source. For this if you want to install a 3rd party app, just disable screen filter , install the app and re-enable screen filter and you are done. Chrome prompts me that it's not allowed to install the app and takes me to the 'install unknown apps' section but the button to allow it is greyed out. This is especially useful for people who do not have access to the Play Store. Instead you can give some individual applications the privilege to install such apps in my case I granted it to the X-Plore file manager.
It's a long shot, but have you tried clearing system cache via recovery? The Unknown Sources toggle could be located anywhere in the Settings application. There are a couple of gambling apps that you can't get through the playstore so you download them from the companies website as apk files. I generally do not recommend people keep this feature toggled on all the time. Note — This changed in Android 8. The company says they do not block unknown sources and I had no issue with my old phone. As with almost all forms of piracy, there is going to be some risk involved.
To install software anywhere else, you have to enable installation from third-party sources. I did the same the on my phone but every time I use Facebook or snapchat on my phone, it always says I need to enable unknown sources on my phone so I do, then it makes install this thing called system, so I do, then it makes install system again, and again. By default, the option is disabled. How do I fix this issue? This is happening for 3 different apk files. I recently updated my 2015 kd65xd8599 to the 7. I just end using the Google reach engine.

Thanks, Seb I have tried using th Samsung internet and also chrome. Check out: From there you can enable that app to allow future installations without being blocked. This is part of a larger issue.
You can install certain apps from third party stores and disable this permission after doing so for that store app alone. The feature should now be enabled on your device, and you may now exit out of the settings menu. There are no extra hoops to jump through. You should see the same menu, but this time the install button should be orange. It's a second standard user account, not a guest account. So whether you're looking for a new show to binge watch or just want to pick up where you left off, you get what you want, when you want it.
Hi, I saw your post. I would also appreciate suggestions for Android tips and tutorials that you would like to see in the future. Have you tried installing new apps via the Play store, or updating existing apps. You should get a warning message similar to this when you try to enable Unknown Sources. They said it must be my carrier, Verizon. I don't believe that's a firmware update, rather an update for one of the apps that Samsung bundle with your device. Thanks to anyone who can assist! I'm lost at what to do to install these apk files? I was wondering if you got a resolution to your issues.
