    I downloaded a program but, my device is set to block installation not obtained from Google play. I do I unblock my device?

    Hard to say not knowing which device you have but in general you need to go to System Setting then under Security there is a box that when checked allows you to install apps from other than the Play Store. It's under Security > Device administration on my Note 3 and it's called Unkown Sources. YMMV.
