Hiding root from apps

If you have apps that you need to hide root from, that detect that your device is rooted even if you can pass SafetyNet, here are a few tips (if you can't pass SafetyNet, see the section about SafetyNet).

Unfortunately, there are apps out there with their own ways of detecting root that may circumvent MagiskHide (also see “More hiding tips”). Magisk is constantly being updated and improved upon though, so it can pay to try again with a new Magisk update.

If you can't get it working, grabbing a logcat when the app detects root might show something (see "Asking for help/reporting bugs"). Save the log and post it in the General support thread, with plenty of details about the issue.

Hiding the Magisk Manager

This is done by going to the Manager settings and choosing “Hide Magisk Manager”. When this is done, the Manager is repackaged with a random package name and can therefore not be detected by any apps or services looking for com.topjohnwu.magisk.

You can see if your Manager is hidden by going to “About” in the Manager and next to the version code there’ll be a random package name rather than com.topjohnwu.magisk. The “Hide Magisk Manager” option will also be changed to "Restore Magisk Manager" in the settings on a hidden Manager.

Unhiding the Magisk Manager

Go to the Manager settings and choose "Restore Magisk Manager".

The Manager can also be unhidden by installing the app again. Simply download the Manager apk and install.

This means that every time there’s an update to the Manager or Magisk, you will have to hide the Manager again.

USB/ADB debugging

If you haven’t yet, try disabling USB/ADB debugging to see if this helps you use your root detecting app.

Developer options

If you haven’t yet, try disabling Developer options to see if this helps you use your root detecting app.
