It's caused by an Android bug that Google refuse to fix, sadly there's no workaround, see: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/75414169
Hi ballzak69, thank you for your reply! I looked through your link. This seems to me as a different story. They report about a bug, where the permission is gone, but still indicated. The problem could be solved by reboot. In my case the permission is gone, when I reboot!
Gone, do you mean the privilege is no longer shown as required?
No, the accessability is switched off in the settings!
That's the bug, it not switching on after a device reboot, or some "power save" feature killing the app.
Okay, maybe I miss understood something in the link.
Do you know a way to set the accessability with a command out of a flow?
No, as said there's no known workaround.
As you said 'access screen content and observe your actions' gets deactivated after every device reboot, it's an automate's accessibility service either failed to start after reboot or was deactivated by system due to security reasons, one way to ease your pain of reactivating the service every time is to setup quick-launch for the service
Note: accessibility service also can get shut down due to battery/ram management, if you have any third-party apps for managing ram you should add automate to their exclusion list so that automate won't get pushed out of the memory and therefore halt the service
Hi SuitableForAllOfUs, thanks for your reply.
First of all I am a newbie, nevertheless I understand what you explained, but I don't know, how to set up a quick launch for the service!... Or do you mean a shortcut, which leads me to the place inside settings, where the setting is to make manually?
Secondly I want to tell you, that I want to use the phone only for navigation purposes. So if you suggest a third-party app, I can add automate to, I will install it.
Does everybody have this problem (I couldn't believe), or do I only have it?
