    Hi, I post here because it seems to be more crowed here than in Devices, and I need the answer as soon as possible.
    I have bought Samsung Galaxy S9+. My old device is Xiaomi Redmi 4X, and I am playing Days After on my old device. This game is not available on Google Play now, and I had to site load from outside sources. I could enable unknown sources on my Redmi 4X in Security Settings, but I can not find it on my Samsung Galaxy S9+.
    How can I download unknown sources on my Samsung Galaxy S9+?
    I don't need link download suggest for my game cause I had had.

    The answer to your question does not depend on your device, it depends on your Android version.

    With Android 7.0 and lower, Enable unknown sources is a visible setting in Security so you can easily find on your Xiaomi. With Android 8.0 and higher, “Unknown Sources” is no longer a system-wide, it's now handled on a per-app basis. This means that when you download an app, an APK file from outside sources with your browser, you'll have to provide your browser permission to install apps. Your Samsung Galaxy S9+ may be running Android 10, so the way to enabling unknown sources is different from your Android version on your Xiaomi Redmi 4x (I also used it before :v 3 years ago, quite cheap. But it broke, I miss it :v :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:). Okey, let's come to the main answer. For example, I will show you grant permission for Google Chrome if you use Google Chrome as your default browser:

    Here are the steps:
    - Get access to the mobile Settings menu
    - In your mobile Settings, tap on Apps and Notification
    - Choose Advanced > Special App Access > Install Unknown Apps
    Install unknown apps
    - Choose Chrome. In case you use other browsers, you can freely choose your browser to download your game.
    - Tap or switch on “Allow from this source” entry to enable the Unknown sources function.
    Turn on “Allow from this source”

    You say you don’t need link suggest, so I will not discuss anything about your game. However, I still recommend you to be careful with third- party sites that provide APK files for your games. Smartly choose the site you trust to avoid malware on your device :thumbsupdroid::thumbsupdroid::thumbsupdroid:
    I hope that you will make it. Enjoy your game. BTW, thanks for up my answer to best answer in the last post, buddy :v :D:D:D

    Good luck!

    Personally I've authorised one of my file managers to install apps, but none of my browsers. My thinking is that I know that dodgy ads have pushed downloads to people in the past and so I'm happier with the browser itself not being authorised to install anything (I don't know whether some ad script could make it do that without my intervention, but why take a chance).
