Allow Installation of Third-Party Programs

By default, you can only install programs and games downloaded from Google Play. The Security menu lets you allow installation of non-Play Store apps on your phone.

To allow installation of non-Play Store apps on the phone:

  1. Tap home key > apps list icon > settings app icon Settings.
  2. Tap Security.
  3. Select the Unknown sources option.

Important: After installing the app, go back to Settings > Security and make sure to clear the Unknown sources option. This can help protect your phone from installing other insecure apps from the Web.
