If you don't want to create a virtual Android like others said, try to isolate the app from the rest of your apps/files with this. If the app puts some kind of identifier file somewhere in your storage it won't find it then.
People here should give Island app a try. Solves most of issues I had regarding permissions. It basically isolates any app you want from rest of the system using Android for Work profile. Therefore doesn't require root. So the apps which refuse to work if not given certain permissions can be given those permissions but they won't actually be able to access anything & you can even freeze an app completely.
The app uses the Android for Work profiles to "clone" and freeze apps, no repacking like other Play Store apps, this is the most native you can get without having the feature backed into the ROM.

There's an app called Island. ([link]) Use it. It creates a work profile on your device, and is perfect for this scenario. Clone the app in question to this profile and your problem is solved.
Alternatively, you can create a second user account on Tuesday phone, but this is not ideal since you won't get notifications or be able to do anything on the inactive one when your switch back and forth.
You can also in the meantime just not grant those permissions. If it refuses to with without it, then I'd just straight up tell my boss that the app doesn't work on my phone. If anyone bitches about it, remind them that this is your personal device.
I use Island to run certain apps with secondary accounts or for testing/sandboxing. It's based on Android's built-in multi-user/Android-for-work features. Apps installed in this space do not affect the actual device, so it's quite handy if you want to check out some random/dodgy app in the Play Store.
You can take a look at Island for a Secure Folder alternative to sandbox apps.
Adguard is a great paid system wide adblocker that also uses a local VPN and gets rid of blank spots where ads would appear on pages.
On Android you can actually move apps between sandboxes to isolate them. One app that allows you to do this is Island, from the makers of Greenify.
You will also be able to run two accounts on each app, like two different WhatsApp with two different numbers on same phone, one on normal way and 2nd one in work profile. The WhatsApp in the island/work profile won't have access to files and contacts of your phone, you will need to create contacts in the contacts app of the work profile hence protecting the data of your phone since you can install any app on the island and it won't have access to your phone data, only the empty partition inside island.
There's an app called "Island" that's pretty much secure folder from the sounds of it. You can clone any app to it and all files and data stay separate.
Try cloning it with Island.
There's the Island app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en_GB which lets you set up a totally sandboxed account space.
Though I personally wouldn't put work apps (especially any requring device admin access) on my own phone. If work believe it's important for me to read emails remotely (it really isn't), they can issue me with a phone.
There is that app Island from the maker of Greenify that if remember correctly can run apps in a sandboxed environment, but have not tested it myself yet. [link]
In past on older Android versions Xposed module Xprivacy was fantastic, because it could send random fake user data (location, device id, etc.).
Normally, the app would be installed under a second (hidden) user or profile which allows 2 instances of apps to run at the same time. In this case, OnePlus hard coded the package names for the apps you can use in Parallel Apps.
If you use a Sandboxing app like Island for example, it allows you to install different versions of the same app by installing the other into the Work profile. It does the same thing as OnePlus only allowing you to "parallel" more than just the ones they're offering.
It also stops apps from accessing private information (such as phone numbers etc) which parallel apps doesn't do.
I use a custom work profile for all of my 'Other' apps. There are current two apps that do this well, Island and Shelter. I have no experience with Shelter, it's fairly new but open source. I've been using Island for a long time now and it works very well! You can set a separate password for work profiles along with other features
Shelter (Isolate your Big Brother Apps / Multiple Accounts) - [link]
Have anyone tried this Sandbox app? Supposedly, it creates a sandbox space so the app cannot access your personal data.
According to this post on XDA Developers, "App ... running in Island cannot access your contacts, call logs and sniff other apps outside ... "
I cannot do it in my device because I do not play PGO, nor I can because of my device, so I thought you could try.
I think this is a Samsung thing, not a general Android thing. But there are other ways to accomplish this on other Android phones too. If you don't already have a work profile on your phone, then Island will let you create one and use it to clone apps. Otherwise, you can still create a new user profile on your phone and install PAD on it. The downside of that is that you need to switch users every time you want to switch PAD accounts, which is a bit of a hassle.
You didn't said what phone you got, so I'll assume its an Android phone.
If you have enough space and don't mind installing it twice, you can use one of those Island-like apps.
Not sure if it still works, but when I had a decent phone (screen failure, didn't care replacing), it worked pretty fine.
Checkout Island (Unreleased)
this is the application you need. I use to for snapchat. it creates a work profile and installs it into there so you can run both separately.
Try ISLAND, it creates a secondary workspace.
Trading works with 4GB and Android 6.0.
There's an unreleased app from the Greenify guy that lets you put apps in an island where you can freeze them. This app may get really big when it's fully released [link]
As you said, a Sandbox keeps apps/programs in its own little container away from everything else. If an app or program is sandboxed - it can't "see" anything outside the sandbox it's currently in which helps with privacy enormously.
I use Island to sandbox apps like Chrome because for some reason, Chrome just loves to hand out my mobile number to random hotspots without asking - so I sandboxed it to stop it from doing that (or from sites requesting it). While it's in the sandbox - it either gets fed dummy info, or just NULLs.
I put Go into a sandbox and it can't access any other installed apps or 'see' anything outside the sandbox apart from the GPS but that's because the GPS is system wide and can't be 'muted' as it were. Sandboxing apps is also great for those rare apps which just scrape every last bit of info from your device (the sandbox prevents that, and returns either junk data or nothing at all).
Wenn JEDER sein Smartphone verschlüsselt, können die Cops nix machen :P
Dann spielts auch keine Rolle mehr ob jemand anders das Smartphone gezockt wurde
Deswegen möglichst viel Bewusstsein dafür schaffen und alle Mitmenschen dazu auffordern!
Whatsapp kann ja "notfalls" installiert bleiben
Am besten die Whatsapp Installation mit der Island App von den restlichen Daten isolieren:
Und wenns um "wichtige" Themen geht, schreibt man eben über Signal oder Briar
I don't think Google will offer it, but Android has a native "work" profile which is completely separate from the regular user profile. Normally it's for your organization to enable it, but there are apps such as Island that can do it.
Or download one of these
And disable the app's access to outside information.
This is the same developer as Greenify. I don't know if you need root for this but you can have the cloned apps totally disappear when not in use - no background data or contacts access.
I use it for Facebook because I don't want it spying on me or killing my battery. So I cloned it and then deleted the original.
Also for two WhatsApp accounts,
If you want privacy on android, get a phone that you can install a custom ROM on it (I personally suggest LineageOS) do NOT install GApps and if you want to run an app like waze, use an app called Island (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en_US) wich works like a container/sandbox inside android, you can turn-off this apps inside the container with a click of a button
About sefl-hosting I strongly suggest you only doing it if you really know what you are doing, running a test server for a year 24/7 with a decent firewall and checking for logs is not a bad idea
You could use Island https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en and it aims to attain the same purpose, but without the bloat (or with native performance).
You can't disable background state of apps in stock Android. You can only turn off the toggle which says background activity which only limits the activity & not completely disable it. If you really want to use it I recommend using Island app & install it only in the work profile & freeze it after you are done. It is by the same developer as Greenify.
Op Android heb je ook nog Island. Dit is vergelijkbaar met een veilige map, maar dan officieel bedoeld voor werk en privé op 1 telefoon. Werking is in principe hetzelfde, alleen de veilige map is helemaal afgeschermd en Island staat gewoon tussen je normale app lijst!
You don't need an entire phone for it though. You can use simpler workarounds like a separate user or working around Android Work.
Check out an app called islands. Here's the link: Playstore Link
This creates a 'work profile' as android calls it. These islanded app are basically completely separated from your regular apps, you can install different app on your main and work profile, and files/settings/data is separated between the two.
I have never used dual-sims so I'm not sure how it works with that feature. But since it's just taking advantage of a built in android feature I'm sure there's compatibility with dual-sims.
Sounds close to what you're looking for! I'd give it a shot if you're willing. Also by the same dev as Greenify.
NOTE: All this app is doing is basically turning on the android 'work profile' feature that isn't normally accessible through normal means while giving a UI for interacting with the work profile features.
Maybe Secure Folder for identity #2 and something like Island for identity #3. No I idea if that would work just a thought.
Edit: link to Island
You should check out Island (unreleased) and Parallel space.
This is the app I used, but there are many like it. Parallel Space is another popular one. Basically it lets you run multiple instances of the same app at the same time with separate accounts. In this case it found that it works well on the second screen of the Wing.
You can try to use it on a container
Shelter - [link]
Island - [link]
Also use a DNS blacktops like NextDNS, Pinole or AdGuard Home, with some privacy (black) lists, simple block privatestats.whatsapp.net
For what it's worth: on Android, there's the 'work profile' option ever since Android 5. Some cool people have leveraged that to be able to have the same app installed twice, isolated from each other in its entirety.
I've been using it for several apps, and it's working great!
Then you've got a few options.
Install Island Early Access, search Google Play Store, it's like Parellel Space except it clones Google Services and apps.
I've used Island for multiple cloned Dokkan apps, and everything works as is, people use it for home/work/etc. Island is your best bet.
Next, side load Google Play Services ( just hit up Google)
Next, your SOL.
Its a part of "Google Play" product line, so i think you will need gmail account for that at least.
You can use apps like shelter or island ( [link] )
to isolate them completely and use a dummy google account to play any game you like.
Or if you don't want to use google account at all then look for alternative games or stop using it that's all there is to it.
It is possible to run PoGo on a rooted device. Prerequisites:
I use an application called Island. It enables the work profile in Android, which sets aside a part of the storage specifically for those apps that you want separated from your main storage. Those apps cannot see outside of the work profile, including PoGo.
At this point, you should be good to go. Let me know if I butchered the instructions here, it's been a while since I did this.
Disclaimer: I use a OnePlus 6, and their SafetyNet implementation is...different. My phone is rooted, but I don't spoof. I just hang out here for the technical goodness..
Any phone reported as stolen/missing will get its IMEI blacklisted, so that status is entirely tied to that number, and no firmware or ROM will change that.
You can run custom ROMs without root, but the majority have some functions bundled with them that need root access, so those would stop working. If you're worried about apps not working on rooted phones, there are some ways to hide root from apps (ex: Magisk can hide itself, and in more extreme cases, you can use a "sandboxing" app like Island), but you won't know until you try running those specific apps you use to find out.
If you mean separate Android Profiles, pile a Guest account, etc, then no, not supported. But you can install Island and use the Work profile to clone apps for secondary accounts, or sandbox apps you want more control over.
Another solution would be to use Android's Work Profile, either through Secure Folder on Samsung devices, or apps like Island.
You can add your work account as a second address on the phone (through settings->accounts) then gmail & other apps will let you switch between accounts. However, don't do this if you're prompted to allow administrator access, as that can give work access to inspect & reconfigure your phone.
The other approach is to a program such as Island, which sets up a sandbox environment you can add your work account to install separate copies of gmail & google apps in. This makes sure that work & personal info is kept apart.
A more extreme workaround to try is a "sandboxing app" such as Island which can isolate an app in a separate "work profile" environment.
This is probably more a question for r/AndroidQuestions, but have you tried using Island instead of Secure Folder? Island uses Google's standard work profiles feature and it doesn't depend on KNOX or any proprietary Samsung feafuess.
Another alternative is Shelter, which is similar to Island but open source.
I'm assuming you meant to say "as painlessly as possible."
The other recent thread mentioned by mzdishe is here:
Look at your second guide (the step by step one) first, then look at the other one to be sure (they should have overlapping content).
As for your other questions, Magisk has an option of hiding itself from selected apps, which may or may not work. There is also a more extreme way of isolating any app using some kind of "sandboxing" app such as Island.
As for rolling back to older versions of apps, it's easiest to use Titanium Backup to backup and restore your apps and app data.
And yes, you can do full phone backups and restore them from TWRP recovery, although stock ROM backups could take over 10 GB of space, so it's best to use either a microSD card or USB OTG.
Install Island ( [link] ), clone the calcyIV app, you can have 2 overlays active, I made the second ones overlay slightly transparent so I can visually tell which one is active to avoid accidentally dirtying the data with the wrong account.
You can use Island or Shelter for that.
They will still run in the background (unless you freeze them), but in a separate work profile, which won't have access to your main profile.
Island is pretty simple if on Android and is free, but in early release. One of the more common ones is Parallel Space but I haven't used it in a long time.
Don't use Nova or other launchers hide feature, that won't prevent the app from being visible in other areas (eg: in Settings), or if the app download any media that could be visible in other apps like the Gallery. Your best bet is to use something like Island to install the app to a secure sandbox, this is a much more secure method and uses Android's built-in work profiles feature.
For having two accounts I recommend Island, it doesn't modify the app, and it places the app icon in your app drawer, which secure folder doesn't do iirc.
You could try to clone it in Island and uninstall the original; Island will block it off from all permissions, and your system might not reinstall if it reads that the app is already on the phone.
What I do is install Island and then copy both PoGo and CalcyIV to the island, and use them separately from the main one. This way you can track both account's mons and maintain the history for both.
Found this from xda forum, works well for me, either can solve the magisk problem, and also able to avoid the game try to test and scan the mobile's inner/outer storage further by building a sandbox and put it there. Only problem heard is the app not working for those who use Google account to login
Found this from xda forum, works well for me, either can solve this case, and able to avoid the game able to test and scan the mobile's inner/outer storage as a easy and perfect sandbox. Only problem heard is this is not working for those who use Google account to login
Your contacts aren't stored in the Contacts app but in the Android contacts database. Changing your contacts app won't solve your issue.
What might work for you however is an app called Island - it creates a separate container or environment inside your phone which has its own contacts, Play Store etc and you can install a second copy of WhatsApp (or any other app) without interfering with your main app. Basically it's like having a second phone inside your main phone.
Can confirm this.
From the Island app:
> On the Island, you can:
> * Use VPN only on one side, or different VPN on both sides.
Island just uses "managed profiles" ("Android for Work"), so it does exactly what you describe. Any apps open inside the Island, including VPN, are sandboxed on the Island and will not communicate with apps outside the Island.
Island is an app that creates a set of parallel apps and makes the system think its a "work profile" allowing you to install snapchat. I was also having the problem with Parallel space until I saw this about Island.
Search for Island on Play Store or in XDA ,the app uses Android for Work profile to clone the apps, the equivalent of what Knox is doing
Edit: here [link]
If you have an Android phone, then install Island - [link]
Now you can install an additional MoviePass app on the island and have her logged in.
If you are using a Samsung device you should be able to use its secure folder. There are something similar for HuiWai and Xiaomi phones.
If you don't have those, you can use island [link]
Maybe with this app:
island should work, i use that for any app i cant hide root from, so it should work for this too, but you wont be able to use lucky patcher there for obvious reasons
Use island to login in the second account: [link]
edit; hmm, the progress problem you should fix with something else, some backup and restore software
Why can't we have multiple profile? Or can we? There are work profile, and island (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en&gl=US) feels like a better step toward privacy through sandboxing. but can't we isolate others like games etc? Coming from an ex qubes user, the work profile is brilliant idea. but can't we have more profile?
Maybe the "Island" app can do what you want. Install the app you want to hide inside island and freeze it (island has an option to "freeze" the apps installed inside it): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=pt_BR&gl=US
Since Android 10 you can have a working profile. In this you can register a second Google account. So you can ist apps like island: [link]
With that you can manage apps on the working profile and just install a second PoGo
I use this app to set up a work profile or second user and have no battery drain increase problem: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en_US&gl=US Even the app allows you to disable the work profile when not in use.
Island has been the one i've seen consistently recommended and I've used it on and off without any problems, same developer as Greenify.
(copied from another reply)
I use a Xiaomi phone, and MIUI has a dual apps option. So can have two separate installs of an app and be signed in with a different account on each one. I actually use Strava this way, with one account for outdoor rides and one for indoor rides.
Another option I've used is the Island app from the Play Store, it uses the Work Profile option to let you have more than one version of the same app running, little more work to set up, but not too difficult.
Of course, both of these solutions require Android, not sure about iOS options for dual apps.
Run it in a work profile:
> secure folder alone is enough for me to have a bias toward their skin as I don't believe there is a good alternative. Could be wrong tho c:
That is an awesome feature indeed! It's not a full alternative, but depending on what aspects of secure folder you use, it might be (it is for my use case): check out Island. It opens up the Android work profile features so you can have a seaprate 'island' with apps and files separate from the rest of your OS. It's not safeguarded by itself by a pin/biomtrics, but there's ways to add that too (there's apps that can lock away other apps behind a password, you can use that to lock off access to Island)
I have a work around for this on Android, by using an app called Island, you can create a parallel app for Teams, this way you can use one app for the first account and the parallel one for the second account.
Se for android pode tentar usar estes apps:
Eles habilitam a conta trabalho que existem nos android e com isso voce consegue limitar o acesso dos app instalados nesta conta, para exemplificar se voce instalar um app na conta trabalho ele somente acessa as informações que estão armazenadas nesta conta e vice versa, eu faço isto no meu celular com o wathsapp, assim ele não tem acesso aos meus contatos e outros dados que ele venha solicitar que estão na minha outra conta.
Só fique atento que não são todos o celulares que permitem isso, vale a pena pesquisar
Sounds like you need something such as Island or Shelter
If you want to run an app with a different account, you will need a duplicator app like island.
you can install an app called island it will create a work profile where you can run duplicate apps.. I have used it without any issues.
image of work profile
I do it a different way, I think there are uBlock filters especially for social media, and also there's the Privacy Badger extension available now (haven't used that though). What I do is use the FB, Twitter, etc. apps and put them in an isolated work profile with Island, which lets me completely freeze them when not in use. There's also an open-source app that does the same thing called Shelter, but I haven't tried that one.
If you have Rooted phone, you can tray Ice-Box works exactly what you need.
If you do not have rooted phone, you can shift your WhatsApp to 'work profile' through apps like Iceland . However, This method is little hectic when you want to have access to data/files across your profiles. Use it only if you are willing to spend time of adjusting many things.
thanks for the response i will look into island
Is this the island app?
A friend recently suggested Island and Shelter, on Android. I'm linking both as looking around, I've seen folks having mixed results on them actually working. Supposedly, they should sandbox apps, and stop them from accessing your data.
That is news to me. Thanks for pointing that out.
Though I am still hesitant because the github repo was last updated 2 years ago. Whereas its play store listing was last updated 30 days ago.
Try Island, it basically activates the Android for Work profile that allows you to separate your work stuff from your personal stuff.
Alternatively, you could disable Gmail sync for your personal account under Settings > Accounts > (personal Google account) > Account Sync > Gmail
The account will still appear in Gmail, but it won't pull any new data down. If it already has some personal emails inside, just Clear Data for the Gmail app and reopen - it will resync as if freshly installed. Your personal account should now be ignored as it's disabled for Gmail.
You can't, apparently.
What you can do is use something like Island and sign up with a different Google account (assuming you're on Android, no idea about iOS)
What I do is I use Island (there's an open source equivalent app but I forget its name). It basically creates a work profile, which is completely separate from the user profile, and Island lets you completely kill apps (freeze) when not using them, even putting a convenient notification with the options in your notification drawer.
I can recommend Island too. No problem so far
Not sure if you can select a default. I have noticed that some launchers makes you choose between the normal and the parallel app every time you try to open it. You could try another launcher or a separate app such as island.
I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en you still need to update both the apps and so on but still better than logging in and out every time.
Sorry if I was not clear enough. I was talking about removing the user 999 in order get Google app working again. If you see the link I have posted, it talks about the same. Not aurora installer.
Have you tried island app. It’s from the Dev who created greenify. Makes use of work profile instead of parallel apps to run multiple instance.
This app should solve the issue. This uses android's built-in option to set up business profile. Made by the developer of the app Greenify.
download the app called island https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en
or from Fdroid you can download shelter app will have similar functionality.
i have been using from past 5 months
This app can do the same thing, it creates a separate pin/password protected environment for you to access apps, download files, pics etc.
Island by the same Dev who made Greenify
If you run any type of android with version 4.0 to newer, you can make a work profile which seperates your main phone account with a work account, basically you can Run 2 of the same apps.
There's an app in beta, that can do this for you: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island&hl=en_US
Give Island a try. It's sort of like Secure Folder but uses the base Android system (rather than Knox) to do it instead.
Are you on iPhone or Android? If you're on iPhone I think the only solution is a new device. If you're on Android you could spin up a new 'container' using Island and it might work.
> This shouldn't happen unless I move to a non stock ROM right
Correct, you shouldn't lose any regular features on anything stock-based. Looks like for your model, the only stock-based custom ROM available is the old Super Rom on Nougat. For Oreo, you'll just have to go with rooted stock, and there are flashable pre-rooted H990DS Oreo stock ROMs on XDA.
>with LOS, I've heard that the battery life should be better. Have you had any experience? Or anyone else ... had any mileage on this?
I haven't used any LOS or AOSP-based ROMs since Nougat, but generally, yes, the battery life should be better and the overall performance slightly faster since they are usually much less bloated than their OEM stock counterparts. For many other phones, something like LOS may be clearly superior to stock, but on the V20, there are quite a few sacrifices in features, so the crowd is pretty much split here based on each user's preferences.
If you're willing to get through the rooting process, then go for it. Once you have TWRP, you should have no trouble switching between different ROMs.
And as for apps that don't work even when Magisk is hidden, in the worst case, you could try a "sandboxing" app such as Island to isolate those apps.
You can even have 2 accounts going at the same time! I use an app called island to essentially duplicate PoGo, and run it under another profile.

Sandbox software. Island is the one I use.
Is it any different than Island (made by Greenify dev)?
The only two I know are Island and Shelter neither are by Google.
1) Get an officially supported LineageOS-compatible phone
2) Flash Lineage to it
3) [Optional] If you really need any apps that rely on the Playstore: allow root access in developer settings, install the Xposed framework or something to allow signature spoofing, and install MicroG (Note: enabling root access and signature spoofing are not ideal for security)
4) Change to known zero-knowledge platforms like Signal or Noise for text and calls, Wire for messaging/video chat, ProtonMail for email, OSMand for Navigation, etc.
5) Stick to apps from the F-Droid Store OR use the Yalp Store for Playstore apps (Consider locking those behind a new Android profile with Island [links to Google Play])
Try Island or Shelter
Island by Oasis Feng worked pretty well in my experience, although it requires ADB to work.
Island does it without root.
Isolates apps using built in "work" profile
Island is a similar play store app
Island or Shelter

Parallel Space and this new approach (plus other features):
I am at a total loss and have pretty much given up. At first I was able to start the game but got locked out while trying to fix the gps error. Now I can't even get into the game due to "Unable to authenticate". Here's what I tried:
Any other suggestions would be awesome. I using a Note 4 running 8.1 with Resurrection Remix 6.0.0.
UPDATE: I gave the Island app another go and found out I was running the wrong PoGo app. When moving the app onto the island, it creates a copy with a little lock symbol on it. I gave it a test and I've been playing with no issues yesterday and this morning.

Shelter is FOSS which would normally be preferable, but oassisfeng has a great rep around XDA. I've been using Island for months and it works great so I've never felt a need to check out Shelter.
Give island a try. It lets you set up a work profile with a work copy of an app that's separate from your personal copy.
I'll be honest, ADHD does define me, and I'm completely okay with it. I try to use it to my advantage as much as I can. I know I struggle to do things from time to time (all the times to times), but I have found some tools and I've just started to recognize things and try to psych myself up to just do things. I started using Any.do on my android phone with Island to keep track of tasks I was/will/am doing. It's a good way to brain dump into an app that keeps constant notifications on my phone to remind me when I glance at it. Works especially well since I'm in IT as a Systems Administrator. I have so many projects going on at once that it is very hard to remember to do everything. On top of this, my ADHD helps me see how to do things in the most efficient way possible since I can run through every way to do something in a matter of minutes. I do feel like a robot from time to time.
I really don't ever want to get rid of my ADHD even tho it can be frustrating from time to time. I don't know if this is only me, but I feel I have been able to learn how everyone works very quickly, Mentally ofcourse. I spend alot of time trying learn myself and how I communicate, and how I understand things. I feel that over the past 5-6 years I have pretty much mastered my mind, even though there are still struggles with being forgetful and what not. Due to me figuring this out, I have learned how to start mastering other people's minds. Hell I know how to fix everyone else's emotional problems at this point with out trying that hard. I just try to get into the mindset that the person is in as much as possible. I'm rambling on here, but you get the point.
I no longer doubt myself, and neither should you guys! I think just sharing our experiences and what worked for each other will help with "coping" with the negative aspects of ADHD. No matter what, just no that you can do anything you want. You just have to care enough about it to make the difference. It's part of my psyching myself up routine. I try to think about how much I care about said thing, and if I don't then I just don't worry about it.
Links for apps:
Island - Seperates data for Apps so you can run 2 of the same app.
Any.do - My favorite task, event, braindump app
Island is the best one I've tried as of yet.
Island or Shelter.
There is also an app in the Play Store which lets you create a copy of the apk: [link]
I had same issue and i use this. It solves my problems... [link]
I found a similar app but I'm not sure if it'll work for you. I'm running 8.0. Also take a look at Brevent and Blokada
I hope that helps you somewhat...
There is an app called island which duplicates other apps and you could possibly use it to log in with two accounts
DNS66- Block ads in apps without root. Maintains a low memory footprint as well.
Island- Isolate an app from accessing personal data by sandboxing it. Doesn't require root.
Telegram- A messaging app focused on speed and security.
NetGuard- Block an app from accessing mobile data or WiFi, or both. Doesn't require root.

Here you go:
Try this: [link]
If you're on Android you could try setting up Island and then install the second Todoist app through the Work Profile it creates?
you can use an app called Island, it has materialistic design also it will create like a work tab in your launcher.
Think this is it...
There is the app Island that let's you have apps in a container. It's still early on, but pretty handy.
Use the app Islands
It's sortof like Knox/ Secure Folder on Samsung devices.
This is excellent advice. I have several apps on the island. They are lonely as they should be. [link]
With Android you can use app called Island.
Island to clone apps. [link]
try this app [link]
There are two apps like this
Try Island maybe?
Use island for work, use secure folder for personal stuff
This might be what you looking for?
Check out Island on the playstore
You can try this app named Island:
Try this app called
It sandbox the lite app as well
You should be able to get dual app functionality on *any* rom using an app like Island
This has worked well for me in the past, although I believe it is dependent on how your OEM has implemented Android for Work.
On the same note Island it's pettry good too
I have this feature already:
Works just like that, with the toggle in qs.
Try this app. It's almost exactly the same thing.
For the times you can't avoid certain apps, you could use something like Island to isolate the app. Or, you could use something like App Cloner to alter the permissions (requires the in-app upgrade). You have some control over this already, but this is much more detailed.
I'm not sure if it'll work on a Chromebook, but might be worth a shot.
This can be done using Android's native work profile feature. An app like Island can simplify that for you(it's still in beta, though). It essentially creates a sandbox environment to clone selected apps and isolate them from accessing personal data outside the sandbox even if related permissions are granted. Also, cloned apps have an icon badge denoting 'work app'. Learn more about Island and Android for Work.
I believe ~~Island does the same thing.~~ I'm dumb.
I would assume the installed on a different work profile (possibly through an app like Island) or user profile - presumably the latter, given the wording of the error. Clearing the app from that should in theory fix your issue.
u/azn4lifee a possible solution to your problem would be:
I've build an app called Hush - Call & notification blocking with support for Android work profiles. It let's you create unlimited amount of 'rules' to postpone or complete block calls and notifications from any (cloned) app on your phone. See my more in dept explanation here.
Inside Hush there is a tutorial with more information about Android work profiles and what it means to have multiple users on an Android device.
Here is a app that can isolate a app and not let it access any of your information
You can try "Island" instead of Shelter:
If you're on Android, check out Island. It's still in early access, but I've been using it for months and had no issues.
Use Island by Oasis FengIt utilizes the work space built into android.
the developer is pretty sketchy and has a history of being morally questionable with his other projects... if you're worried you can run it with some kind of emulator on pc or run it sandboxed on your phone (plenty of apps to do that with... island, app cloner, shelter etc)
You can try isolating the app to island [link]
Island | Early Access | Free | 1,000,000+ downloads | Search manually
> On the Island, you can:
* Isolate app, for privacy protection.
* Clone app, for parallel running.
* Freeze app, to completely block its background behaviors.
* Hide app, for various reasons.
* Use VPN only on one side, or ...
Your problem implies a fix would be to simply reinstall an older version of Hangouts ors start using another app that can do the same. However, other options for "cloning" a given app are using a work profile app like Island or Shelter, a virtual subsystem app like VirtualAndroid or F1 VM, or simply making one or more user profiles on your device.
Works good for me
This is if you want to make multiple copies i.e. have 3 copies of the same app (free version allows you one of an app and limits cloning options). In your case I would probably recommend using island ( [link] ) or shelter ( [link] ) in your case. What it does is create a "work" profile with a separate set of apps and play store and have a little icon indicating that they are part of the work profile. If you need to deal with files you will have to jump through a few hoops to copy files from your phone to the work profile as it is treated as a separate device.
Island will create a work profile in your device where you can have your banking app cloned to the work profile and use.
Island | Early Access | Free | 500,000+ downloads | Search manually
Island is another I might look at
I personally use Island, it's great
I would recommend Island.
You can use island to have 2 versions of the same app running.
Vault. Kinda obvious name though
Also just searching "Calculator hider" or "Calendar hider" brings up zillions of results, who knows how safe they are though.
I've found Island together with Ice Box to be working the best for me. Island creates a work profile on your phone, so apps installed to Island might not be able to interact with apps installed regularly, and updating apps automatically probably won't work when apps are disabled. Ice Box can disable apps after you turn off the screen and they won't turn back on until you open them yourself.
Otherwise, Greenify is just slightly easier to install but you'll have to tap on it's notification or the button in the app to force-close the apps you want. Apps might restart their background processes by themselves again after a while though and you'll get another notification from Greenify. (You might need to enable the notification settings in Greenify for that.)
If you're on Android you can use Island to clone a second copy of the app.
try reinstalling either that or freedom home in [link]
Install Island and keep select apps from seeing the others
I use Island to allow me to run two instances of the same app.
This works perfectly for me: [link]
In some environments this type of kill switch can be useful.
Specifically: if you are using Android at Work on your own (not through an enterprise) (which you can do with the free app Island), there is no guarantee (possibly due to Android bugs) that activating a Work environment will necessarily correctly start an always-on VPN. All connections will be blocked if the work environment VPN is configured as always-on, but the VPN itself may fail to work.
But stopping and restarting the VPN app will start the VPN normally. During the time that you stop and restart the VPN app, clear packets may be transmitted, if the VPN does not implement the kill switch as requested by the original poster.
If it's only a few apps that can see each other, you can install them in work profile (look at shelter on f-droid or island on google play) It's probably not bulletproof but the apps cannot see accounts, access sdcard or list apps installed in your main profile and you can freeze them.
Are you on Android? Try using Island and see if that helps:
You could check this app (If you don't already use a work profile)
Island (Early Access)
On the Island, you can:
* Isolate app, for privacy protection.
* Clone app, for parallel running.
* Freeze app, to completely block its background behaviors.
* Hide app, for various reasons.
* Archive app, for potential future use on-demand.
* Use VPN only on one side, or different VPN on both sides.
What app is this? Some apps which have FB login for instance are woken up by FB, and in more general terms apps can be woken by other apps. I use the app Island which creates a work profile in order to completely separate a group of apps from the "mainland" (the rest of your phone), and the nice thing is that while the app is running it posts a notification that lets you quickly freeze it when you're done, and it stays frozen until you open it again.
Note that this is different than the various other apps that clone the apk and modify it, those are more invasive and prevent you from getting updates from the Play Store. Plus since the app is modified there is an issue of trust more so than with a work profile.
It's from the same developer of Greenify, and there is some sort of integration for automated freezes, but I'm not sure if it works without root. It should be possible technically though, but I haven't looked into it too much.
Put it on a: Island (3.8)
PrivacyGuard is made to restrict apps from certain permissions whereas Shelter isolates apps in a workspace.
PrivacyGuard is a good option if you just want to restrict an app for accessing your contacts, pictures, etc. but there are some times when you need to access those permissions while also wanting it to respect your privacy, which is what Shelter does the job for you. Shelter uses the "Workspace" (forgot from which Android version) feature to isolate apps in a workspace, so the apps may have all the permissions in the world, but they won't be able to access the contents in the main workspace, so it will also respect your privacy.
Though there is a better alternative to Shelter, that goes by Island which is more customisable than Shelter, and it is also FOSS.
Like the former commenter said, try Island [link]
>On the Island, you can:
>* Isolate app, for privacy protection.
* Clone app, for parallel running.
>How do you turn a samsung version without having a samsung phone?
I just downloaded the Samsung version from apk mirror and use them both in dual screen mode
You can use Island by Oasis Feng if you're on Android.
A bit more poking around, and it seems that if they isolate their g suite account using the "work profile", it seems to work fine.
I've tested the same on my older PH-1 using Island, and it seems to both allow a non-gsuite environment (including assistant) along with allowing my purchased apps (under the gsuite account) to be used simultaneously.
I'll probably wipe my pixel 4 over the holidays to try it out.
Also note, you can enable the Android "Work Profile" feature - that normally requires an MDM - with an app like Island. Install your email and other work apps in that, and you get a one-button toggle to completely disable all of them. No sync, no notifications, no nothing.
You can use the 'island' app.
You can try using Island. It basically creates a work profile, in the same way that Android For Work does.
if someone doesnt have samsung, this might also work with "island"
Check out Island, it may suit your needs. [link]
You can use two copies of any app by installing Island.
It uses a function of Android that many are unaware of, the work profile. [link]
HOWEVER, it doesn't actually create two copies of an app on your phone, it just simulates the second copy. So I'm not quite sure if it would work here, or if the work copy would overwrite the personal copy of the app.
I haven't done it personally, but from some googling it appears the usual way is that your org has to do it. But I have been using the app Island, which works for its intended purpose (isolating apps) by creating a work profile. I think that might work for you. Everything in the work profile is like it's running on a separate phone, but you can launch its apps normally, and includes its own Play Store and Play services.
Island can be found on the Play Store.
Android user accounts can be set up like so:
There's one called Island. It's from the same dev who made Greenify. I'm not sure if it support Android 10 tho
There are a lot of apps out there to achieve this. I'm currently using Island which uses the work profile as a place to have a second version of an app.
For more than 2 instances of an app, you'll have to look for a different solution.
It's listed under apps
Have you tried Island? It basically lets you branch off a secondary profile with its own app space.
Island gives you easy control over the built- in work profile. I use it to run a second instance of WhatsApp for my second SIM. Should be exactly what you are looking for.
I'm not positive that I need to use Island. But since it was so easy I never looked further.
It's early access but so far everything fine and didn't encounter any problems.
What kind of a game leads to you having multiple other people log in on your phone?
The solution would probably be to use Island, but perhaps Im not understanding correctly because it seems very bizarre to have other users sign in on your phone for a game.
The ability to do this is built into all Android devices. Samsung is just one of the only device manufacturers that currently take advantage of it. There are a bunch of apps that do the same thing, but are typically only sold to companies to set up on their employees phones.
Island is one anybody can use. It's currently still in development though so it is possibly unstable.
You can use island
The Island app should you let do it.
I can't vouch for it personally though.
There may be different setups that works, here is mine.
You can now log in each Pogo app with a different account, split each app and run them at the same time without having one frozen while the other one is active.
You can skip the Island install if you use the Pogo from the Samsung store.
Let me know if something is not clear enough.
You can use island.
It creates a second version of the app and transfer between multiple accounts yourself.
Have you considered trying a "sandboxing" app such as Island? Some people had success with that when Magisk Hide wouldn't work for their root-detecting apps.
That's what you assume because you don't understand ad networks and their power.
Install Facebook on: [link]
And do your experiment again and you'll get the same result even though Facebook is completely isolated from other apps.
The closest to a sandbox on android is Shelter or Island. It makes use of the Android work profile but it's not a full sandbox implementation so don't rely on it to protect you against malware.
Chromium already does a good job with its sandbox implementation. So I don't think you will get malware by just browsing a streaming site, an adblocker is enough IMO.
Shelter on fdroid
Island on play store
App cloner [link]
Yes there is a sandbox app available on playstore which lets you do so. It is still in unreleased phase, it works with root access or just adb permissions.
i was able to create one using island
On Android there is an experimental app named island ([link])
The purpose of the app is duplicate apps when you need two accounts like WhatsApp (1 personal account and one for work). Some people on my community says it works well with PoGo
On Android you can have another copy of the app using Island so you don't log in and out each time. Works wonders for me
Parallel Space is another app that work similarly but I haven't tested it personally.
Maybe Island can work
Unfortunately i can't help you further. Good luck on finding the problem. A temporary workaround could be installing it on island and see if it works.
you could try to make a work profile version of the game with island this allows you to run the same app side by side
Secure Folder is a Samsung feature. In general you can use Island.
If you know how to run 2 WhatsApp or Facebook apps concurrently, you can do the same with Clickpocalypse.
If you do not, look into Island, or if you prefer FOSS, Shelter.
The app Island from the Greenify developer works pretty much the same as secure folder and was what I used before I had a Samsung. https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/apps-games/closed-beta-test-incoming-companion-app-t3366295
Island works perfectly.
But you may need to do extra steps if your phone doesn't support multi users login.
Yep, had the same issue once, lost my secondary account, but prim got restored by shear luck. Lots of advice on how to proceed to recover has already been posted, so none from me. (would be the same anyway)
When you're on Android, take a look at Island. This helps you setup an isolated profile for 'work'. This can be used for your secondary account. CSR 2 offers the option to switch accounts, but messes up way to often. (it's almost guaranteed to kill your account) With the work profile you have them separated, but still available on the same device.
Don't know if there is something like that for IOS though.
Try island. It creates an Android Work profile with different accounts and gallery as well.
Island is what I use for this
Yep, I miss that a bit too. You can install Island to get something similar.
Island — Apps on Google Play
Just edit the package name with ApkTool and install or you can try Island or Parallel Space.
This one :)
[Introduction to Issue]
OK. I did a little research on this issue. As at OneDrive version 5.18 [04/10/2018 DD/MM/YYYY], on Android Nougat 7.1.1 with adoptable storage enabled, the issue still exists. It affects specific accounts on the phone. If I try to log into OneDrive using my @outlook account, or any other account, it works OK, except for 1 specific account. I still don't know why, but I have figured out a good workaround:
If you can, or have access to it, enable Android for Work Profile on your device. Install OneDrive into your work profile space, and sign in to OneDrive. It should work. For app launch speed, since adoptable storage could be/is on, move the OneDrive app to internal storage. The app should now work as normal [using the Android for Work functionality. You'll notice this as you use the app, etc].
If you don't have access to the Android for Work Profile functionality [say, for instance, your company/corporate IT hasn't enabled this on/for your device], there is an experimental and free app on the Google Play Store called Island [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.oasisfeng.island]. Installing and activating this app will enable Android for Work profile on your device. Follow the app's instructions to "clone/install" OneDrive into the Work profile space, then setup OneDrive. It should work.
Note: if you are not comfortable using the experimental Island app I mentioned above, there are some other known apps on the Google Play Store that provide multiple accounts/app options, like Parallel Space, which may theoretically work, as a workaround. I have not personally tested these apps with this problem, but I know they also utilize the Android Profile functions on phones. You can give it a try and let this thread know if it works.
I hope I have been of some assistance. If this problem gets solved, or if I discover another easier workaround, I'll post again.
Islands, as in this Islands? Or another app? Because I downloaded and installed this app well on my S7 Edge running LineageOS 14.1 (will be using 15.1 soon, when it's official)
There's software for Windows like Sandboxie that can do this. I am sure there's others but that's the one I know off the top of my head. If Sodaplayer is an Android app, there's Island that leverages the work profile to sandbox apps.
Try island [link]
Run Pogo in island but joystick normally. Make sure you do a restart after setting up island.
Edit: and use app ops to block permissions
Android is probably safer and easier than IOS for multi-accounts on one device.
Samsung phones come with a "Secure folder" that you can make a duplicate of any app in. It's completely closed off from the rest of the OS.
For the rest of Android users there are two options. Option 1 is adding a new user to the phone like you would on a computer. Completely separate accounts and everything. Open 2 is using something like Island to clone Pokemon GO.
I use Island to manage a work profile on my phone and it does exactly what you're after.
Example of the photo app running separate accounts.[link]
This app? [link]
Seems promising... Going to have to see how it plays with AirWatch. Thanks.
You don't need a second device. I use Island to trade pokemon between my two accounts and it works perfectly.
Did you clone Facebook and Google Play Games? If you did and it's still not working, try Island. Note that you still have to clone FB and Google Play Games.
Yes. Basically two versions of the same app.
Island - [link]
EDIT: You'll need to be rooted for this, unsure of what there is available on non-rooted devices.
Dude just download Island dont need to get another phone for this
I would just use a vpn for just that account and use [link]
To clone Instagram and have it separate from the other app
I don't know about linkme, but here is it [link]
You can try Island
Get rid of the root and exposed and then create or log in to a Snapchat account. Root and use Xposed after the first log in. For multiple accounts you can use Island or test DPC
Would Island be something similar? It sandboxes the app by putting it in a separate profile using Android for Work
I've been using the app before getting my OnePlus phone, and I see that it's the cleanest and least buggy app cloner out there:
Well, as I implied, I don't really like the design of the feature much and would rather improve the convenience of user profiles along with exposing useful existing functionality for locking down user profiles that's just not exposed via the UI.
Android for Work is a bit odd, and I don't really understand the design goals. It's usable for things other than BYOD though. For example, [link] is just a thin wrapper around Android for Work, which is exposed via the device management API. It's not really a great fit for what they're doing. I like what user profiles do much more, and they enforce things like a user profile not being able to record audio in the background already without us doing anything.
When you said you tried parallel spaces, did you try [link] ?
If your phone directly supports it different user accounts? How about other app cloning apps?
I suggest Island over Parallel Space. It cuts off apps from your main user profile completely offering better privacy without any "emulating" overhead unlike Parallel Space. Parallel Space also grants every permission to every app without the ability to disable certain permissions.
I second that. Here's the link.
There's an app called island that kind of does this
Should be noted on Android, you can sandbox apps to prevent this kind of device scraping (I use Island).
I had to put Chrome into a sandbox because it gave out my mobile number to any and all hotspots which requested it (case in point: I started getting weird texts after going on Holiday to Barcelona and using their city wide Wi-Fi for maps). Now if any site or hotspot which tries to scrape information like it is either given dummy data or just plain NULLs.
LineageOS or CyanogenMod, that's right?
[link] I guess.
I don't use Whisper, but you can try Island or Parallel Space or App Cloner and see if any of them work for you. All of the above allow you to run multiple instances of the same app in their own sandbox.
stupid bot :(
here is the link:
I checked the app in question on the Play Store. Excessive permissions. Why don't you write to the developer(s) and ask them to explain every permission requirement in detail in the description? If they don't respond or respond with a stupid answer, you are better off with an alternative. In the meantime, install Island to isolate the app and restore sanity.
Not this one bot.
Maybe even check out Island for Greenify :)
continuo a insistere con questa :^)
App cloner use to be good now its filled with ads. I belive, Island is the new app which is better (see comparision). Let me know if you are still unsure on which app to use.
Island might be kinda what you're looking for. It allows you to create a work profile and 'clone' apps to it.
I'm not sure if work apps can still access your photos but take a look. :)
I haven't tried it, but I believe that you might be able to do this using Island. Let us know if this works!
You can try this app also which is a app sandbox [link]
Island. Uses managed profiles, which is also the base for Android for Work, to run everything in a sandboxed environment.
i would recommend aegis instead. last time i was using google's authenticator there was no way of exporting your OTP keys so if you lose your phone then your keys are gone for good and its going to be a pain in the ass trying to get back into your accounts and some you might not even be able to
with aegis you can back up your keys or a usb drive or whatever and then import them to your new phone when needed. the backup is encrypted but i store them in a cryptomator container along with other stuff i need to keep secure.
and its just an easier app to use in general i think. tap a key to add it to the clipboard, add icons so its easier to see whats what etc
>and I don't want a fucking bank running their dodgy software on my phone
there are apps that let you isolate other apps. island was one i tried out a few years ago but there could be better ones around now
you can clone all apps using [link]
Sounds similar to what Island has been doing for a while now.
