5. If your Mi Box asks for access or install permissions, turn on "Apps from Unknown Sources".​

Usually, the Mi Box S will pop up to ask for your permission. If not and you can't install apps successfully, go back to home and find the settings in these steps: Settings>Device Preference>Security & restrictions>Unknown sources.
