Screen overlay detected

Hi. I used the app with no hassles for a few days, today as soon as I want to enter my password, I receive a pop-up screen prohibiting me to enter with password. The message "Screen overlay detected. Certain full screen apps, such as dimmers, can compromise your security. To continue using the Banking App please disable these in Settings>Apps."

Firstly, why is this happening how all of a sudden. 2 What apps do I have to disable, I have quite a few. This is frustrating as I have to make urgent payments as I'm on the road during the day, this method of payment via the app makes life easier, but now this! 

 

PLEASE HELP!

 

regards

Brandon

Hi, 

 

Are using any screen dimmer type apps. If you are, you need to disable these apps.

Also please confirm what version of android you are using.

Standard bank have to be the most useless twats in existence. The screen overlay only happens with the standard bank app, not FNB, not Capitec, not Nedbank or not any of the other banking apps. Are you that bloody useless you cannot even support your own services... disgusting, there are a few of us that have been crippled by this, and it appears my only solution to the problem is to move to FNB.
