    ‘Install Blocked’ error message during the installation of an android app

    I am using a LG android handset. I tried downloading an android app from the Google Play Store for android apps. But when I tried to install it on my android device, I got an error message stating ‘install blocked’. Now please let me know how this issue can be fixed.

    you are getting this error message cause android blocks install of application from other sources other than play store. it is for security of the device, however if u want to install other application you can follow these steps:
    Goto settings > application > then tick on allow install of application from other sources.
    after u can install all application.

    The problem can be occurred for many reasons;

    1) Make sure that you have verified your Google play Account. and configured the same properly in the Device.
    2) Make sure that the Application you are trying to download is available.
    3) Check for the compatibility issue of the Application with the Devices.
    4) Improve the Internal memory of the device.

    there can be a number of reasons why this happened..
    most basic of them include..
    Not enough memory on device to install..
    App is not compatible with the Phone and OS..
    Be sure to login in Google Play Store before installing..
    Google does not support downloading of apps from other sources, other than Google Play..

    Hi,
    The problem of not able to install the application that are downloaded from the Google Play store might be due to the problem of the Google that you have added is not verified properly so it is better to verify the account. Also you might not have accepted to the Google Policy due to which the application might not get downloaded. In order to get rid of the issue open the "Settings" menu from the application drawer and then select the option as "Applicaitons" there you will find another option as "Manage application" under this menu you will find an option as "All Applications" select that and clear the Data and cache for the Play Store application and then reboot the phone.
    Hope this Helps.
