Allowing app installs “Unknown Sources” in any Android

Allowing app installs “Unknown Sources” in any Android


As part of the Android Operative system, there is a restriction that blocks installing applications outside the Google Play Store.

If it’s your first time installing an App from Storage, you’re greeted with, "Install blocked. For security, your phone is set to block installation of applications not obtained from Play Store" message as you try to install. But how do we get there?

 

To allow app installs from outside of the Google Play Store, here are the steps for all Android:

 

For MI devices:

  1. Navigate to Setting > Security.
  2. Check the option "Unknown sources".
  3. Tap “OK” on the prompt message.

That’s all for MI device, now you can go back and try again to install the Application.

 

For Samsung devices:

  1. Navigate to Setting > Security.
  2. Check the option "Unknown sources" tap on it.
  3. Unmark form “Allow this installation only” (If marked) on the prompt message.
  4. Then hit “OK” on the prompt message.

  1. Go to Setting > Security.
  2. Find out the option "Unknown sources" and tap on it.
  3. Tap “OK” on the prompt message.
  4. Select “Trust” (If required).

That’s all, now you can go back and try again to install the Application.
