Enable Multi User on Android Lollipop and Marshmallow

When Google released Android 5.0 Lollipop, they brought in a really interesting feature called “Multi-User” the feature was a lot like something we have seen on Windows where a computer can be controlled by 2 different people but each user will have access to a different environment. The feature was a massive success. However, when the other companies started releasing their own versions of the Android 5.0 Lollipop and Marshmallow, some of them decided to take it out completely.

This made a lot people mad, especially people who have to go through the agony of their children or their friends using their phone. There was no solid reason why the manufacturers removed the feature from their versions of Android but a lot of reports suggest it was because of some performance issue.

Moving on, thanks to the evergreen Android community, there is a way you can get the multi user functionality back on both Android 5.0 as well Marshmallow. However, the method doesn’t come without its own caveats. The only one being the fact that you need a rooted phone and Xposed framework installed. If you have both the required things, you can follow the guide and learn how to bring back multi users support.

Enable Multi User on Android Lollipop and Marshmallow

  1. Download and install the multi user module from here.
  2. Xposed will ask you to enable the module and restart your device, do as prompted.
  3. Once your phone has booted up, you will be able to add multiple users on your device.

That is all, folks. You have successfully brought back the multi user feature to your device running Android 5.x Lollipop and Android 6.x Marshmallow. We would like to thank Anton111111 for his efforss. In case you faced any issues, feel free to let us know.
