I have been trying to install showbox on my Galaxy S8 which is currently on Android Oreo 8.1. But as I open the apk file and proceed with the installation I am unable to click on the Install button. However I can click on Cancel button. I don't understand what is the problem. Any help guys??

The s8 settings are out of the box set to reject files via apk sources as they are out of the sanctity of the Google Playstore and as such can carry a risk of bad code , bugs and malware. 

However a person can change this so apk files can be used. 

This is undertaken at your own risk knowing the issues and that using streaming services can carry copyright issues. 

 

Settings , Apps , 3 little dots in the top Rh Corner ,Special Access. Install Unknown Apps. 

 

Or in settings , lock screen and security / biometrics and security, Install unknown Apps.
