Installing Netspark Mobile on Xiaomi devices
On Xiaomi devices, there are several steps that have to be completed before installing Netspark Mobile. This is to ensure that the device will remain protected at all time. On Xiaomi models that run the unmodified Android One operating system (like the Mi A1), Netspark can be installed according to the standard Android installation process.
Before installing Netspark Mobile, please check the following two settings:
1. The "Second space" option must be disabled. If this option is activated, you must disable it by entering "Settings" => "Second space".
2. The "App lock" option must be disabled. If this option is activated, you must disable it by entering "Settings" => "App lock".
Please note! Netspark Mobile must be installed from the Netspark website and not from the Google Play Store.
In order to install Netspark Mobile on a Xiaomi device, please complete the following steps:
1. Open a web browser and go to www.netsparkmobile.com
2. Press "Download App" and then "Download Application". Download and open the Netspark Mobile installation file.
3. Press "Install" to begin the installation. After the initial installation, press "Done" and return to the device home screen.
4. Press and open the "Security" app.
5. Press "Boost Speed" and on the next screen press the "Settings" button (the gear icon on the top left).
6. Press "Lock apps" and the next screen, swipe the toggle and turn on Netspark Mobile.
7. Return to the device home screen and enter the "Settings" app. On the next screen, enter "Installed apps" and press "Netspark Mobile".

10. Press and open the "Netspark Mobile" app.
11. Complete all requested installation steps. During the installation process, when asked "to enable passwords protection", you must select "Yes" and press "Continue". This will ensure that the device will remain protected at all time.
