So, as you might know, Android 10 supports Multi-User feature (for reference - this thing)

I have some apps from F-Droid, installed while on Owner profile. But most of the apps are only visible to Owner (I suppose those are User apps, as the universally visible are System apps).

But how can I make some of these apps visible to other profiles so I can use them with all the features provided with separate user accounts (e.g. compartmentalized app data)? Preferably using only one device, without ADB connection to PC, and without re-installation.

There are similar questions on this topic (1, 2, 3), but the answers are outdated. The newest one is 7 years ago.

  • @IrfanLatif are there any ways to do it without ADB connection to PC and/or app re-installation?

  • No, or at least not in my knowledge. Dec 29 '20 at 12:01
  • @IrfanLatif what about moving app files from /data/app to /system/priv-app? It could be done from custom recovery, e.g TWRP. Does it have any drawbacks and/or additional actions required?

  • I won't go that hard way to achieve something simple. But you can try it. Dec 29 '20 at 12:53
