SwitchMe creates user profiles just like a desktop computer, each with its own settings, apps and data based on your current system partition.
Offers advantages in granular application and user security over stock multi-user and works on any Android version. Does not run as a virtual machine like other solutions. Allows secondary users to have their own system, framework, theme and debugging settings.
Includes a lock screen system that allows multiple users to log in and out without access to the desktop, like a traditional desktop.
WARNING - READ CAREFULLY* **
We do not provide any direct support for this app - it is your responsibility to follow the guidelines below.
SwitchMe requires root/superuser permissions, look here for information on what that means and do some research online: http://fahrbot.co.uk/root
- Only apps installed to /system will be available in clean profiles. Cloned profiles will have access to all apps, wherever they are located.
- As best practice have your superuser app installed into /system. Always use the latest version of SuperSu, with su request enabled on boot and no reauthentication.
- If you cannot switch profiles or the app is crashing, you have likely broken the apps root access in your current profile. Uninstall, reboot and install from Google Play again. All profiles and data will survive this reboot intact.
- Most devices should be compatible as long as they have enough free internal memory to create profiles. You will be warned if available memory is low.
*This app creates copies of your base firmware and stores them as encrypted archive files. These copies can be clean "profiles" that you boot to and set up with specific Google or other accounts or clones of existing profiles, which will be exact replicas you can further modify.
**After entering a new profile and setting up an account your original Administrator profile will always be available through the SwitchMe app which will come pre-installed.

LATEST VERSION: 126.96.36.199.B36
REQUIRED ANDROID VERSION: 4.0 and up
automatically start at boot
Allows an application to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the application to slow down overall performance of the phone by constantly running.
display system-level alerts
Allows an application to show system alert windows. Malicious applications can take over the entire screen of the phone.
Allows an application to disable the keylock and any associated password security. A legitimate example of this is the phone disabling the keylock when receiving an incoming phone call, then re-enabling the keylock when the call is finished.
modify global system settings
Allows an application to modify the systemʼs settings data. Malicious applications can corrupt your systemʼs configuration.
read system log files
Allows an application to read from the systemʼs various log files. This allows it to discover general information about what you are doing with the phone, but should not contain any personal or private information.
view network state
Allows an application to view the state of all networks.
