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. Only download

applications 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 allow the download of applications from other sources


From your Home screen, tap .


Find and tap

Settings > Security.


Drag the slider beside

Unknown sources to the right.




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 that you trust.

You can view the permissions granted to a downloaded application by tapping the application


Settings > Apps.
