S7 help - screen overlay???


Installed a Nest yesterday. Set up the app on my G3 no problem. Went to set it up on SWMBO's new S7 - when I try to enable location access for the app it says "screen overlay detected - disable it in app settings" then takes me to a setting called "apps that can draw over other apps" or something and there is a list of apps none of which are Nest?

Can anyone help me understand what on earth this is all about? What is Screen Overlay? How do I turn it off? What has it got to do with location settings???

Thanks
