    after updating to the Android 9 version with the built # A600_22_180915 all the parallel apps are just cloning with the original app and also there is no request while opening the parallel apps.

    I've looked and did search too but on the other thread I was informed to post with the current releases hence opening a new thread

    What did you expect actually ? Also, your picture isn't really relevant to your thread

    I guess and I've used parallel apps, which actually allows you to use another account not just a mirror image of the original app

    It will clone at first with your first account information. What happens if you disconnect from the account in the clone ? Will you be disconnected from the original app as well ? Did you try it ?

    yup tried on Facebook and what's app, if I delete the account on WhatsApp the original account from the original app is also deleted ( which I guess , its the expected behavior because I'm deleting it) but over Facebook if I sign out, I'm also signed out from the original app

    Well, it's a shame. Like you said, I thought the whole purpose of Parallel apps was to have a secundary account for an app. But if it's just a clone, it's pointless in my opinion.

    when I tried, it gave me an option to login to new account.
    and when o logged out my primary account remained logged in.. so I don't understand how it gets you logged out in main account.
    if you uninstalling the parallel app like normal apps, it won't work, it will obviously remove the actual app, if that's your actual issue.

    my actual issue is that if I choose a parallel app it is already signed in with my account information from my original app information and if the workaround is to logout from the parallel app, please try with WhatsApp and let me know the workaround if any

    I just tried it. Working fine on my OP 6 running stable Pie (same build).

    Both Twitter and WhatsApp parallel apps are working fine - as parallel apps.

    I guess it might need some cleaning of cache or something.. ive tried using parallel apps for Facebook and whatsapp but if I sign out from parallel apps it gets me out of the original app too. let's see after giving a feedback through profile >> feedback what does our team do in this.

    Does anyone have any updates on this?

    I'm having the same problem with my Oneplus 6 Oxygen OS 9. I can enable parallel apps and a new icon is created but when I open that cloned app, it just takes me to the original app with the same profile.

    I have wiped the cache and restarted to no avail.

    UPDATE: I fixed it! This is what worked for me.
    1. Turn off parallel app for the app you have a problem with.
    2. Wipe cache
    3. Restart phone and turn parallel app on again.

    It's not just clearing cache. The important step is to turn off parallel apps first because it would remove the parallel app pointing to the original app, then clear cache, then turn parallel apps back on so that the new parallel app gets its own storage space.
