    im having the same problem, i share my phone to some other persons, and the gestrures are no longer working, when trying to find the settings the settings for gestures don't even show when looking for them.

    I use guest mode widely. All my junk apps that drain battery and data like Facebook,tiktok,magazine apps WhatsApp , signal, telegram almost everything are installed in guest user. So then I travel, I just restart the phone in main user and none of the apps in guest will start and suck data and battery. Also I have disabled SMS access for all those apps in guest mode. Also main thing I have all my kids personal photos in the main user only. None of the guest apps can touch it. So hope you got the importance of guest mode.
    I also have huge protest as gesture navigation no more work in none of the guest user after the 10update. Life was beautifull before the update, I regret the update. I protest and I am hugely disappointed with this update.

    Gesture navigation is very much needed in guest mode as I use the guest mode widely and I am used to guesture navigation. I brought oneplus because of gesture navigation. All my junk apps are in guest users. I spend 90% of my time in guest user. How can I escalate this issue to oneplus on priority. I believe they just have to enable the option in guest user settings.

    I came up with a workaround.

    In the guest account (or alternative profile, in my case a kids profile). Download the app "activity launcher" from Play Store -> Launch it and search for "navigation" -> probably at the bottom you will find "com.oneplus.setupwizard.OneplusNavigationGesturesActivity" -> tap it and it will start the wizard where you can choose navigation gestures instead.

    Worked for me and is saved so it works every time I launch my daughters profile.
