If you’re looking to turn off the screen overlay on your Samsung Galaxy Note 4, this guide will show you how it’s done.
If you’re new to Android, there are a few things that might look different than what you’re used to. For example, if you’ve been using an iPhone or another smartphone, you may notice that there’s a persistent notification bar at the top of the screen. This bar is called the status bar and it contains icons for notifications, battery life and other information. It also includes some buttons that let you view other information like weather, date and time.
There are several settings options in the Notification Panel that let us customize our experience with Android. The easiest way to access these settings is by pulling down from the top of an unoccupied screen (do not pull down on an app or home screen). Once pulled down, this will reveal all your notifications along with Quick Settings buttons at the top of the display.
The Quick Settings panel can be customized to show or hide any of these buttons by tapping on them individually until they disappear from view on your device’s display.
Screen Overlay: This setting controls whether or not apps can push notifications directly onto your lock screen when they arrive.
