    Welcome to the forum

    My (1st) suggestion would be to try a different browser. What type of file are you "trying" to download?

    But you should still be able to install a different browser. Try Puffin or Firefox.

    Have you tried downloading another MP3? It could be an issue with that file.

    There is a setting for download over WiFi only. The apps may not play by this rule.

    Welcome to the forum

    Could you be more specific? OS lock or screen lock for starters.
