I have a Gionee Pioneer P3S on Android 5.1. I was trying to use Tasker. I observed that the Tasker accessibility service gets disabled automatically after a few minutes.

Not only with Tasker, all apps requiring accessibility services are having the same problem.

It will be helpful if someone can help me with this problem.

I was facing the same issue on my Lenovo Vibe K5. I did the followings to solve the issue.

  1. Enable accessibility for the concerned app in the Settings.

  2. In power saving option (in most cases it is inside the "Battery" option), select the concerned app not to be optimized.

  3. Select the app as device administrator (this setting may be found inside "Security" option).

  4. If possible, lock the app in Task Manager so that it will not be killed when you kill all the tasks (apps). In "mi" phones, you need to slide the app downward to lock it in Task Manager. I don't know how to do it in Gionee Pioneer P3S. In my device, this option is not available, so I never kill the concerned app in the Task Manager (or if I kill the app, I re-enable the accessibility, then it remains enabled until I kill that app again).

After doing these, the Accessibility option remained enabled even after restarting the phone.

This may not be the exact solution you asking for, but this is all I found after hours of searching.

  • I have done all these steps and still Tasker sometimes fails due to Accessibility access. It is difficult to find a way to generate this problem reproducibly, or to solve it. Commented Jun 17, 2022 at 19:25

Disabling battery optimisation was not enough for me. I had to disabled battery saver completely as every time it kicked in, all of my accessibility services were disabled.

Also, the offending service for me was Last Pass, but the principle is the same.

    I can't find an option to turn off battery saver, only an option to turn it ON. Commented Jun 17, 2022 at 19:28
  • you just need to make sure it isn't set to kick in automatically at 15% or whatever

    I have no idea what that means. Beginners need specific instructions. Commented Jun 20, 2022 at 23:45
  • no problem, didn't realise you were a beginner! Does battery saver turn on automatically for you once your battery level dips below a certain percentage?

  • I don't know how to find out. But I don't usually let the battery fall below 50%. The accessibility access stops when the device is left to charge, probably because the data of all apps is automatically backed up to Google One. I did find a way to change the battery indicator from white to orange, but I don't know what that means. The device's manual is not detailed, and I cannot find detailed instructions for use either for Android 11 or TCL A3 on the Web. Commented Jun 23, 2022 at 13:35

In my case, Oppo F1s, I found out one solution.

First of all, your device should be rooted, the best way to do that is through resetting firmware to factory or updating to newer Oppo system image, then installing custom recovery, then rooting under Recovery mode using Magisk. All this is described in some XDA-developers forum topic.

But that is not our issue for now. To prevent accessibility permission to be revoked from our service or app:

  1. We have to go developer, by browsing SETTINGS > DEVICE INFO, then clicking 7 times on BUILD NUMBER.
  2. Now that we have become DEVELOPER for good, we go back and then we navigate towards SETTINGS > ADVANCED SETTINGS > DEVELOPER SETTINGS.
  3. Then enable DEVELOPER OPTIONS, open section RUNNING SERVICES, browse for application named SECURITY CENTER, inside which we can see 4 running services.
  4. Then STOP service named CONTROL_VERIFY_SERVICE (of course on your own risk).

That is it, now just go to SETTINGS > ADVANCED SETTINGS > ACCESSIBILITY and enable accessibility for your application and enjoy it.

  • I installed a Service manager and it could not find a service named security center in Android 11. Commented Jun 17, 2022 at 19:38

I use the same Gionee Pioneer P3S and I have found better solution.

  1. Go to Advanced settings
  2. Go to Accessibility
  3. Make the services on
  4. Go to Power management
  5. Go to Power manager
  6. Take power saving mode and click on info button (right-side)
  7. Uncheck (deactivate open the green background)
  8. Don't forget to save

You are done.

  • On my device (TCL A3/Tracfone/Android 11) there is no Settings > power manager. When I use Settings > search for "power saving" or "power manager" there is no result. Commented Jun 20, 2022 at 23:50
