MIUI, the user interface for Xiaomi/Redmi/POCO smartphones, offers a wide range of features that are utilized daily by its core users. One notable addition that came with the release of MIUI 8 on August 23, 2016, was the Dual App feature.
Dual App allows users to clone and run multiple accounts for the same app. While popular apps like WhatsApp, Instagram, and Snapchat typically limit usage to a single account per device, Dual App breaks this restriction by enabling the creation of duplicate instances.
However, if you own a budget Xiaomi/Redmi/POCO smartphone running MIUI, such as the Redmi, you may have noticed that the Dual App and Second Space features are missing from the Settings. After thorough investigation, we have gathered valuable information on this matter.
The Dual App feature is actually part of the Security Core Component App, identified by its package name “com.miui.securitycore.” This app also encompasses other noteworthy features in MIUI, including Enterprise Mode, Family Guard, and Second Space.
Starting from MIUI 12.5, Xiaomi has chosen to conceal the Dual App and Second Space sections in the Settings of budget Redmi phones like the Redmi 10. Nevertheless, many users still consider this feature significant and wish to have access to it.
Fortunately, there are workarounds to activate the Dual App and Second Space features on low-end phones. One method involves getting the MIUI Downloader app from the Google Play Store. After installation, users can navigate to the Hidden Features tab and tap the Dual Apps button to activate the desired features.
In conclusion, users can now enjoy the benefits of the Dual App feature on their devices, even if it is not explicitly listed in the settings, thanks to these alternative methods.
