How to activate the Dual apps feature on Xiaomi budget phones Steps to activate the dual apps feature
MIUI for Xiaomi/Redmi/Poco smartphones offers a wide range of features that are important for everyday use. One of the notable additions that came with the release of MIUI 8 on August 23, 2016, was the Dual apps feature.
What is the advantage of dual applications in Xiaomi economical phones?
Dual apps feature allows users to clone and run multiple accounts of the same app. While popular apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, and Snapchat usually limit usage to one account per device, Dual App breaks this limitation by enabling the creation of duplicates.
However, if you own a budget Xiaomi/Redmi/POCO smartphone running MIUI like Redmi, you might have noticed that the Dual apps and Second Space feature is missing from the settings. After a thorough investigation, we have collected valuable information about it.
The dual application feature is actually part of the Security Core Component App, which is identified by the package name “com.miui.securitycore.” This app also includes other noteworthy features of MIUI, including Enterprise Mode, Family Guard, and Second Space.
