Out of the box a Samsung phones preference settings is to deny letting an Apk file download. 

 

So a person typically needs to change that preference setting. 

 

You should find it in Settings-Biometrics and Security-Install Unknown Apps 

 

Or look in Settings-Apps-Tap the 3 little dots in the top Rh Corner-Special Access-Install Unknown Apps. 

 

Please take into consideration these apk files have not been vetted by Google so when downloading from this way your accepting risks.

Out of the box the phone is set to stop apk file downloads. 

 

You'll need to go into settings and allow downloads from outside sources.

 

Be aware > downloading apps via apk files away from the safety of the Playstore is performed at your own risk.

I was trying to install an app from outside play store, aptoide.

The apps installed from there ended up with app not installed error. 

Had to open google settings-security-google play protect-  to the top right settings gear turn off 

-scan device for security threats

-improve harmful app detection

 

Apps installed afterwards normally

You can install the app after uninstalling WhatsApp plus apk. If you are using gbwahtsapp and WhatsApp plus official at the same time it's difficult to install the app.
