Huawei P30 Pro Overlaying App

Hi all,

I have a Huawei P30 Pro and every time I try to log in to Monzo it tells me there’s an overlaying app open blocking me from continuing despite no other apps being open.

Please can someone advise?


Overlaying apps have been an issue before, especially on P30s. From memory you have to disable all launchers and go into your system prefs and check there are no other options active.

Failing that, search the forum for “P30 overlay” and I’m sure you’ll find the answer.

Normally it’s facebook messenger

Turn on power saving mode (settings - battery) and this will disable the overlaying apps in the background. You’re welcome

Have the exact same issue. Hace tried everything. Have spoken with Huawei Tech Support and after trying several things they’ve determined that this an App specific issue. Since it doesn’t happen with any other app. Has anyone resolved this P30 Pro issue with Monzo?

Quick update: I’ve managed to do it! But really don’t know how. The only thing I’ve done differently is that deleted and reinstalled the Monzo App, then deleted the Monzo “App Data” and then switched the phone off and back on again (note: not restart). This is all I can recall I’ve done diferrently to before. At least I can now access the app. Hope this works for others!
