Parsing error is the most common error encountered on any device running on Android OS. It may occur due to changes in the manifest file of the app, partially downloaded the app, no permission, obsolete app, etc. To fix the error,you can change the name of the app or even change its code. You can also give admin permission to install from the unknown sources. Try enabling USB debugging and disabling Antivirus. At last, avoid downloading partial or incompatible APK.

A parsing error when installing an Android app could mean your Android version is not supported. The following are the common reasons why you receive a Parse Error when installing an app on Android:

  • If the app is not compatible with your phone or device.
  • If you modified the manifest of the application.
  • If you have a security app on your device and it is blocking the installation.
  • If the option “Install from Unknown Sources” is not enabled.
  • If the downloaded APK file (*.apk) is corrupt or partially downloaded.

To fix the problem, first option is to enable installing from third-party sources. By default, this option is disabled. On your device, go to “Settings”, “Security” then check “Unknown sources”. After this, try installing the app again. If this doesn’t work, try disabling any security app you have on your phone. If you have an antivirus running, disable it temporarily then install the app again.

If this doesn’t work, make sure the file is downloaded completely. Try downloading the app again and install it. If this doesn’t work, verify that the app is compatible with your device. Visit the download page or Google Play where the app was downloaded and check the system requirements. Verify that your device’s Android version is supported. If the problem continues, try enabling USB debugging.

On your device, go to “Settings”, “About phone” then locate the “Build number” and tap it like seven times (7). Next, go back to “Settings” then tap “Developer options”. Tap the slider on the top right corner of the screen to turn on Developer options. Now, check or tap “USB debugging” to enable it then tap “OK” to verify.
