Thanks Tsh77271 and ife01. I have been able to successfully reproduce this issue on my side. We can now work on a permanent solution for this issue.

@ Tsh77271 thanks for providing the info on how to reproduce the issue. Without this we'd still be struggling to figure out why this issue is affecting certain users and not others.

Hi, I just  purchased a second hand phone, Samsung S4 mini. Its running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. I don't have the menus listed as on the previous posts to disable the overlay. 

I removed all the unwanted software that is on the handset. Not sure what else to look for. Please help.

Hi Jamz. Is your virtual keyboard open when you tap on the login button and is it in any way obscurring/covering that login button?

To be true Screen Overlay is basic feature used by almost every application.
Messenger Chat Head, Inbox Messages Preview and Whatsapp Messages Popups are all examples of screen overlay feature, so you can't uninstall all application to resolve Screen Overlay Detected popups on your device...
You just need to manually turn off screen overlay of all applications in your device, Follow following settings to turn off screen overlay of android application:
> Settings
>Application Manager
>Click on Three Dots (Top right corner) & Select Draw Over Other Apps
>Turn off screen overlay of all apps one by one
This must solve the issue of screen overlay in your device...
If this isn't solving screen overlay issue in your device or you haven't got my answer then refer to below reference: How to turn off screen overlay.

Hello.

I have an android p30 and I received the screen overlay message in my app that won't allow me to login. I was directed then to my app permissions to turn off screen overlay but it seems my latest Android syetem UI. App called 'system ui' has a screen overlay function that I can't disable. Also since it's my android UI I can't disable it. Please help since it's really frustrating as I want to use my mobile banking.
