Unable to find allow unknown sources

Hi all, im trying to allow unknown sources, in security, settings. so that i can use “Aptoide” but can’t seen to find it so of course it can’t download or update anything…any help appreciated.

When you try to install an APK, the system should notify you and then give you the option of enabling unknown sources. Does it not do this?

No it doesnt, it ask you in a pop up before downloading to goto security>>>enable unknown sources. ?

Here are instructions to enable installs from unknown sources in Pie. Pretty convoluted - I guess the devs are trying to discourage users from peeking over Google’s garden wall.
