    What android version is it running?

    In the most recent version that box doesn't exist any more. Instead you can grant a particular app the permission to install unknown apps (in Settings > Apps > Advanced > Special App Access > Install Unknown Apps) rather than a global setting which allows any app able to launch the app installer to do this.
