    I had the same problem for moviepass app, and I didn't have any fancy brightness control apps, or any battery doctor or cleaner apps.
    So I had only one solution:
    Settings > Draw Over other apps > Reset App Preferences
    After I did that, my issue got resolved, but I had to add back all the earlier preferences one by one for each app.

    I almost lost my mind with this problem. I disabled all of the overlay permissions, and restarted phone and disabled usability functions... And no.

    Then I had to go and remove apps that had been updated, and the culprit was ES File Explorer.

    I know this thread is old, but if this can save the trouble from someone else that I just went trough, it's worth it.
    Good luck.

    Also please do note, that some people have said that "Reset app permissions" will fix it but for me personally it just added more problems as all permissions I had set before were indeed reset but I couldn't change any of them...
