    Hi!

    I have an Android lollipop phone (Huawei Y6). The accessibility options for all the services are automatically disabled by the system after a while, no matter how many times I switch them on for a number of services.
    I do not use Lux, LastPass... I have disabled the auto brightness feature...

    Any recommendation? Many thanks in advance!

    Many thanks B. Diddy for your prompt reply. Based on your suggestion on the battery options,
    I found a thread where teshnair posted the following:

    I had the same problem ever since I got my Huawei Mate 8; after a few experiments, the below is what worked for me...

    Settings --> Advanced Settings --> Battery Manager --> Protected Apps.
    Protect all apps that you need the accessibility for.
    Restart phone.

    Settings --> Advanced Settings --> Accessibility.
    Turn on accessibility for the required apps.

    Haven't had a problem since.


    It seems to work! I will monitor for a couple of days.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! Check to see if your phone has aggressive battery-saving features. Based on my Honor 5X, it seems that Huawei likes to add those kinds of features. Perhaps this kind of power-saving mode might be turning off accessibility automatically.

    Good to hear, and thanks for describing the solution! Huawei's battery-saving features can be overaggressive to a fault.
