How the second space works on Android smartphones

Second space implies a second empty workspace. You can edit the home screen, add icons, applications, contacts. It is also allowed to create new accounts, such as Google account.

Why would you need such a function? There are a huge number of reasons. For example, you give your child a phone, but you are afraid that he will enter the payment systems. For safety, create his personal space and move all the games there, and protect yours with a password. By the way, yes, the option allows you to put protection on the second screenwhich is very convenient.

Or you actively use your smartphone for work and want to separate your home and career space. Moreover, all personal information will be away from the prying eyes of colleagues.

Much to my regret, the built-in function is present only on smartphones from the Chinese company Xiaomi. This is an individual advantage of the firmware called MIUI. If you own this particular brand - you are very lucky, if not - do not despair. On other models the second space can be turned on with special applications.

There is nothing complicated here. The only requirement is to activate the second workspace. To do this, go to "Settings." And we get down to the section "System and Device.". Click on the tab "Second Space.".

We see a new white screen that says "Create a second space - a clone of the system with its own settings.". We agree.

Wait 2-3 minutes for all items to load. The first run may take some time.

A tabbed shortcut will now appear on the home screen called "Control and Switching.". It is by using this button you will be able to change your workspace.

The preparatory steps are not over yet. Now you need to configure the function. To do this, select the icon of the same name "Tuning.". We can protect the screens with passwords, or skip this step.

The next step is to import materials from the first space. You can move photos, videos, various files, and applications. Information can be left in two accounts, or it can be completely moved to the new area.

This ends the creation and configuration of the second space on Xiaomi. As we can see, there is nothing complicated. All the maneuvers are extremely simple and do not even require rooted rights.

  13. On the Redmi Note 5 I created a second space. Everything worked without problems for several weeks. The phone is working and rarely used, and the second space for personal calls and, trivially, for games.

    A few days ago, when going to the second space, the phone began to turn off. It only turns on after holding down the power button for a long time. Then everything goes round and round "first enter the password from the first space", after entering which in any way entering the second space causes the phone to pass out.

  17. Hello Maxim, a question. If I jump into the second space, then in terms of third-party services, say, payment systems, or anyone else, is it perceived that I enter on a different (physical) device or not? For example, in the first space, I logged in under one nickname, and in the second under another ... and also if it is two different physical devices, then logging today and tomorrow in the second space, it will again be different devices or one and the same. Some services (you know about it) ban for registration on one and the same device and the purpose, how to bypass this? There is no expose and exprivacy on fresh xiaomi. Once upon a time a long time ago used some kind of prog that changed the device ID, but I forget which one. Can you help me?

  18. If the second space is inactive (you are currently in a normal system), the applications in it will be disabled. They will not have access to geolocation or the network.

  19. Maxim, thanks for the article, there is a question.
    Second space applications (if using the first) - do they fall asleep or work?
    For example, will the second space applications have access to the Internet, GPS, etc., if the second space is not used?

  20. No, because it's essentially a different phone.

  21. Two spaces are organized on the phone.
    I have a VPN enabled in the first space, I am in the second space and I go online from there;
    The question is whether my access to the Internet from the second space is protected by a VPN enabled
    the first one?
    Sincerely, R.
