    I am trying to install an app that is not available in the Play store and it just goes to my download folder and from there I cannot install it. I tried to allow it in security but compared to my Priv the Key2 does not have an option to allow apps from unknown sources.

    Oreo changed the way installing apps from outside the Play Store works

    Which browser did you use to download the app? Assuming it's Chrome, you'll need to go into Settings -> Apps & notifications -> Chrome -> Scroll down to "install unknown apps" and enable "Allow from this source"

    Then find the downloaded apk and install it

    I wouldn't whitelist a browser though - too risky.

    I give permission to my file manager instead.

    Good idea, didn't know that.
