    Whenever I try to turn on the accessibility of any app it shows "Because an app is obscuring a permission request, Settings can't verify your response".
    Because of this problem I can't even install apps from file manager coz I can't select the install button.
    Please help me.

    Had the same issue. Worked after turning off my brightness control app. If you got anything always running try pausing it and then switching the setting.

    Avast was complaining Web shield needed accessibility permission to work and this error prevented me granting it. I eventually solved it by turning off a gesture option on my Oneplus 6T. I navigated to navigation bar and gestures and changed from using Navigation gestures to using Back, Home, Recents. Then it worked and I switched back to using the gestures afterwards.

    uninstall all apps that use accessibility mode and reinstall the one you want to use again. There is possibly some app that is using your accessibility mode to trigger itself on it's own which is why you get that error.
