For background on how these settings could relate to the performance of the Bark for Kids app, see here.

Huawei has its own unique take on Android that it calls EMUI, so there may be some settings you can adjust to ensure Bark for Kids isn't affected by aggressive optimization.

  • Settings > Advanced Settings > Battery Manager > "Power plan" is set to Performance.
  • Settings > Advanced Settings > Battery Manager > "Protected apps" – check for Bark to be Protected.
  • Settings > Apps > Bark > Battery > Power-intensive prompt [x] and Keep running after screen off [x].
  • Settings > Apps > Advanced (at the bottom) > Ignore optimizations > Tap Allowed > select
    "All apps" at the top > Find Bark on the list and set to Allow.
    • Alternative method in some devices: Open Settings, and search for and access Battery optimization. Touch the little inverted triangle next to Don’t allow, touch All apps, locate and touch the Bark app, and select Don’t allow.
  • Lastly, double-check that Accessibility for Bark is enabled.

Some Huawei models have a slightly different location for some settings:

Huawei P9 Plus:

Huawei P20 and Huawei Honor 9 Lite:

  • Settings > Battery > App launch and then set Bark app to “Manage manually” and make sure everything is turned on.
  • Lastly, double-check that Accessibility for Bark is enabled.
