Find apps blocking APK install button

I had a problem the other day.. Android has a protection against malicious apps doing overlay (screen filters, buttons etc); when installing custom APK, you can't press Install button. On my phone I had to install an app to list all apps having the overlay permission, specifically this:
Advanced Permission Manager
After filtering which apps could do that, I was able to pinpoint the problem app and use Titanium Backup to freeze it (check if it is the guilty one).

I'd be happy if you could share what apps you've found out could do that for others to know.
In my case it was Lux Auto Brightness (1.75) [CM 12.1/Android 5.1]; after I upgraded it, the problem has disappeared (it disables itself automatically when an installation is detected).

Very nice, thanks for the post

I have allowed the installation of applications from unknown applied actions in settings, but I can't seem to press the install button. The cancel button works correctly and installing applications via adb install works correctly. What's the problem?

I want one, but man I cant justify that kind of money for a red button. Looks nice though.

I've been looking for anything that I can use as a window seat at my apartment, and I've been looking for something that I can put under the window in puppet hockey
