I am using Shelter to create an isolated space for apps which I don't trust very much and to disable them when I am not using. Shelter works by creating a work profile in Android and registering itself as the administrator, thus granting it rights to disable apps.

This has been working great in my Android 8 phone, but I recently got a new phone which comes with Android 10, and unfortunately it looks like I can no longer share the same keyboard in work profile apps. This is important to me because I use KeePass2Android to store my passwords and it provides a virtual keyboard to automatically input credentials into any text field.

Is there any way to get back the old functionality and be able to use personal keyboards in work apps?

  • @beeshyams Shelter directly provides the option to install personal apps into the work profile, so I can use that, but it is a last resort since I would have to maintain two apps... not ideal :) – TheDcoder May 30 at 10:44

  • @MorrisonChang The GitHub issue is slighty related, the user is trying to isolate the keyboard to a certain profile, which is the opposite of what I am trying to do :) – TheDcoder May 31 at 13:02
