Downloading Applications from Other Sources

When your device is set to allow downloads from sources other than Google Play™, you

can download applications directly from other websites by following the relevant

download instructions.

Installing applications of unknown or unreliable origin can damage your device. Download

applications only from reliable sources. Contact the application provider if you have any

questions or concerns.

If you are using a device with multiple users, only the owner, that is, the primary user, can

allow downloads from sources other than Google Play™. Changes made by the owner affect

all other users.

To Enable or Disable the Downloading of Applications from Other Sources


From your

Home screen, tap .


Find and tap

Settings > Lock screen & security.


Tap the

Unknown sources slider.




Some applications may need to access data, settings, and various functions on your device in

order to work properly. Only install and give permissions to applications you trust. You can

view the permissions granted to a downloaded application and also change their status by

tapping the application under

Settings > Apps.
