    I had to turn on"install from unknown sources" to install some apps from my employer. Now can I turn "install from unknown sources" off to be safer and still what I installed before from my employer will keep working without any problem? in all cases?
    also if I do the same in my new Samsung device running on Android 6.0.1?

    Thanks

    Correct. That option is only relevant for installing the app - once it's installed you can turn it off again and the app will continue to work normally.

    Hi,
    After you have installed an APK file you should keep unmark/ deselect in
    Unknown sources.
    This will not effect anyway with the installed apps.
