Hey guys. Searched around and couldn't find another thread addressing this particular issue.

When I try to give an app accessibility access (in this particular case, it's the app Dashlane) it shows me the message "because an app is obscuring a permissions request, Settings can't verify your responses." Could anyone tell me what exactly this means and/or what I should be looking for to solve the problem?

Running Cosmic OSv.1.3 based off of Nougat 7.1.1
OpenGapps nano package
Magisk
No Xposed

Any help would be appreciated!

Go to app setting and grant all permissions.

Regarding Your App Permission Issue
Hi

Welcome to the XDA Help Forum.

Regarding your permission issue on your phone, the problem may be caused by an app called "File manager" (or "Gestionnaire de fichiers" in french). Either you can uninstall it, or if you want to keep it, go in "Settings -> Applications -> Settings -> Draw over other apps" and set the value to "No" for "File manager".
If you don't find still...Go to settings and search 'draw over other apps'.

Let me know if this info is helpful in resolving this issue or not.

Regards,
Ashwin Nanaware

If it can help... Same issue with Huawei P8 Lite 2017. No way to autorise USB debugging, failing with "An app is obscuring a permission request".

I solved this as follows:
- Go to Settings > Apps > Settings icon (at the bottom).
- Then Advanced > Special access > Draw over the other apps.
- At the top right, in the scrolling menu, choose "Show system processes".
- Select "Floating dock" and disable "Permit drawing over other apps".

Si ca peut aider... Meme probleme avec Huawei P8 Lite 2017. Impossible d'autoriser le debogage USB, erreur "Une application dissimule la demande d'autorisation".

Probleme resolu de la maniere suivante:
- Aller dans Parametres > Applications > Icone Parametres (en bas).
- Ensuite Parametres Avances > Autorisations speciales des applications > Se superposer aux autres appli.
- En haut a droite, dans le menu deroulant, selectionner "Montrer les processus systeme".
- Selectionner "Menu flottant" et desactiver "Autorisation de superposition".

Try this↓
Check whether there is other app that request accessibility service, then turn it off.

Some apps like fooview or easytouch may casusing this after you granted accessibility service permission to them.
(Worked for me after i disabled the fooview accessibility service when i was requesting adb permission from a PC)

I can not turn off every draw over other apps there and dozens of them, same with modify system settings, is there a way to turn off all of that crap temporarily as I need to use Andorid debugging and it will not tell me what app is blocking the OK, but turning off all of these apps is not practical as I may need to enable multiple computers.
