3. Shinobi service doesn't work.

Please, turn ON in Accessibility.




4. There is an error in Accessibility

【Caution】It is a randomly-generated and very complicated in nature bug.

Even after you've enabled Shinobi in Accessibility sometimes it actually stays disabled.
It still says ON in Accessibility.
You may often encounter this bug, especially when two or more Apps are enabled in Accessibility.
In this case, please, reboot your phone and disable all Apps in Accessibility service.
If this doesn't work first time - please, try again.
If this doesn't help, please delete all Apps that use Accessibility.
Then, install "Shinobi" and enable it in Accessibility.
Unfortunately, this is Android's bug and there's nothing we can do.





FAQ

Can't get all messages after being offline?

Android OS won't be able to get all the messages because it's only capable to get the latest message.


Can't get any messages during the chat?

While using chat there will be no notifications, therefore no message will be intercepted by "Shinobi".


Can't see images or stickers?

The notifications don't get images or stickers, therefore those won't be displayed.


Can't receive long messages?

Android cuts off heavy long messages. It also depends on the sender's OS, App or character settings.


Can't get any messages?

Your Android has to have an OS which lets you copy the notification messages.


Talkback automatically starts in the StatusBar on some models of GALAXY etc.

Talkback appears in the Notifications when you turn it on in Accessibility settings on some models of Android.
As far as we know, you may have to turn on "Talkback" in Accessibility settings once and then turn it off again to make sure Talkback is not displayed.
However, you might find that it's impossible to use terminal operations when you turn on "Talkback".
Please try to turn it off immediately after turning it on.
Unfortunately, because this is a bug in OS, there's nothing else that can be done other than that.
