    A few updates ago, I was unable to hide any apps, but able to unhide old apps. Still, I can not hide any apps, after multiple restarts

            • Dual app on xiaomi.

              I use dual apps on xiaomi.
              When i select original app (exp WhatsApp) it show pop up another 2 icon. So we have to choose which account want to open.

              On xiaomi's launcher, when i select original app, it's open original account directly.

              Sorry for bad English.

                            • Dual apps don't work as expected

                              When using dual apps it creates a second instance of an app, but when starting primary icon I always get the question which instance I want to start. When selecting the second icon (from start screen or app drawer) nothing happens.
                              When using another launcher both icons start a different instance (as dual apps is supposed to work).

                                      • secure folder apps duplication

                                        When secure folder apps are updated, there are duplicates created.
                                        The phone has to be restarted each time this happens. Please fix this.

                                        I'm currently testing this on my Note 9 with Android pie (Samsung's one UI)
