    Hey guys, I did the upgrade this morning and faced the screen overlay issue. I was not able to attach any media in Whatsapp. It was super frustrating
    I had about 20 apps in the screen overlay list and it didn't make any sense to me to disable all. But I disabled the screen overlay for one app called "File Manager" and bingo... it worked!!
    Now this is my guess but I may be wrong - Any app that can access your storage directly should be disabled from screen overlay. "File Manager" app was something that could access the phone storage directly, so it was creating the issue.
    I will be happy if this helps you guys. Take care.

    So here is how you fix it (through safe mode)
    So first turn off the device
    Then turn it on, and as soon as you see the one plus logo appear, hold down both the volume up and down keys until you reach the desktop.
    You are now in safe mode.
    Go to Settings/Apps then click on any program which you want unlocked eg WhatsApp, and then select Permissions and make sure everything is turned on. Now restart normally and all is fixed!

    Hope this helps :)

    Whatsapp on my One Plus Two also had the 'Screen Overlay' issue post upgrade. Uninstalling Clean Master worked for me. I then uninstalled and re-installed Whatsapp and was able to restore data.

    If you have Clean Master you can try the option. Thanks Chandanp86.

    You mean when those apps (lux/drupe/whatever) running on your phone, you can change other apps permission without getting screen overlay detected message? I try Google and found that some nexus also experienced this problem.

    I have one M8 running MM with gravity screen & drupe installed and never experienced this problem also but I don't count it because:
    1. The phone is rooted, its unfair
    2. Doesn't remember whether i tried change any app permission since upgrading to MM (the phone is not with me now)

    had the same issues, I tried deleting my screen brightness app and did nothing. The one that caused the problem I think was an app I used for my external Ipega controller. It was android controller settings or something... So that might help some of you. When I deleted it I could access the permissions from everything else again

    Hey thanks. But i couldn't go to save/recovery mode as all the options (appearing after i let the volume down button go) were in Chinese lol. With no option to chose other languages. But I fixed the problem by doing a factory data reset from setting menu and that solved the problems.

    @Rohit

    Rohit please uninstall all battery savers or cm security.... Etc. Press power button and press power on screen when a prompt comes to reboot in safe mode.
    Any change of app permissions can only made in safe mode.

    After reboot in safe mode follow the steps

    1. Go to apps in the settings
    2. Please press the round shaped gear button
    3. Please go to Access permissions
    4. There within the same manually enable storage, camera, microphone... Etc options within for apps like Yahoomail, whatsapp, Instagram.... Etc
    Please select carefully as you would be dwindling security control measures.

    Same thing here, I've tried all the suggestions here. The only thing I have not done is remove my CM Launcher because I like it (always looking for suggestions as to what works better, if you have one). No one has suggested the Launcher may be the problem. My issue is why has this issue not been resolved by the developer?
