Enable/Disable “Draw over other apps” Notification in Android

Apps which run in background but need access to few resources like camera/screen layout will require “Draw/Display over other apps” Permission.

But this could be annoying when the sticky notification always appear when you swipe down your top menu, especailly when we already know that the app is not harmful.

These kind of notification appears in Apps like Messenger (facebook), PayTM, Lookout, etc.

Below is the way to disable/re-enable it when needed:

Hi Srihari, The Call Recorder is working fine on one of the device but suddently stopped pulling Audio Files from another 2nd device. It was pulling on the new device earlier but has suddenly stopped i guess after that phone was done with a OS update. Target phone is Samsung S8 running Pie with latest update done 2 days ago. Pl advice a solution for the same. Should i uninstall and reinstall the app there?


Hello Srihari,
Thanks for this wonderful app. It helped in saving my marriage by taking precautions. Stay blessed.
Could you keep the name as Record Audio or anything not beginning with the letter A. It shows up in the top of the list of Apps and my spouse commented that the icon looks scary.
