Restricted Settings Permission Issue

Problem

You can't grant Niagara Launcher access to your notifications or enable Niagara Launcher's accessibility service. This is likely because you sideloaded Niagara Launcher (i.e., you didn't install/update it from an app store like  Google Play). Android assumes that apps not distributed from curated stores are often from shady websites and could thus be malicious. That's why it is harder to grant those apps permissions. 

So, first of all, ensure that you install Niagara Launcher from one of our official sources or a website you trust. Granting the notification or accessibility permission to a modified version of Niagara Launcher can be dangerous. If you are sure your version of Niagara Launcher is legitimate, follow these steps:

Solution

Here's how to remove the restriction:

  • Open Android's settings > Apps > See all apps > search for Niagara Launcher and open the result. This will open the App info page for Niagara Launcher. 
    ⚠️ It's vital that you navigate to the App info settings this way. Navigating to the App info settings via Niagara settings > Advanced > App info will not show the three-dots menu in the upper right corner and thus will not work.
  • In the App info settings, tap on the three dots on the top-right and then tap on Allow restricted settings.
