Disabling status bar functioning differently in Android 11 & 12

expand collapsive

We applied the same policy on our Android 11 and 12 devices, a single app kiosk policy unchecking ‘enable status bar’ in peripheral settings. But it is being disabled only in Android 11 while it is still accessible in Android 12. What could be the issue?

  • Hello,

    We understand your concern. This particular issue has been noted in Android 12 devices. However, devices running on Android 12 that are enrolled in Android Enterprise do not exhibit this behavior. So, in the meantime, we recommend enrolling the said devices in Android Enterprise as Device Owner until Android resolves the issue.

    I hope this helped.

    Hey guys, I’m in the same boat. Been so used to having the status bar hidden that I’ve tried multiple ways to find a way to do it on my current android 12 device. Installed multiple apps and tried rooting the device, but nothing seemed to work effectively. So please do share a solution if any of you find one.
