I’m using the latest Monzo app (version 1.21.1) on Android, and recently run into this really confusing restriction.
When trying to send money to another Monzo contact, I had this “overlay detected” block pop up and prevent me of sending any funds.
I remembered, that I did stopped all other apps using overlays before, so this mystified me. Nevertheless, went back to double-check, and all apps were switched to “No”, whether they can
Draw over other apps. I looked and switched all system apps to “No” as well (which wasn’t needed last time I did this check). Still no change.
In the end I hunted down, that it’s the Android system’s own “Night Mode” that is triggering this warning.
If I switch Night Mode off, the Monzo app lets me send funds…
This can be really confusing. I only guessed the Night Mode, because on other devices I’ve seen this block due to the “Twilight” app that does the same, but here it is not an app but Android’s own functionality.
Is it really intended to be blocked? Or is it some oversight?
I’m using Android 7.0 on HTC One M9.
