What a scare thousands of users have been taken around the globe with their Xiaomi smartphones. Since late this afternoon, numerous clients of the brand have gone to the company’s support networks and forums asking for the message “Security keeps stopping” that appears on their mobile phones.
Just go through Twitter and look for this message to see how those who have a Chinese brand smartphone have come across this error message whose origin is not too clear. Apparently it is a MIUI 11 problem that MIUI 12 users have not gotten rid of either. Fortunately, your solution is quite simple.

This problem is not that it is totally new because in the past users of several Redmi models have faced it and the most feasible solution is to erase all the stored data of this app from the mobile settings. To do this, enter the applications menu. select the security app and in the storage section, select delete data and clear cache.
Another way to avoid the Xiaomi error that generates the message “Security still does not work” is to hold your finger for a few seconds on the icon of the security app and select Application information . Then, at the bottom of the screen, click on Clear Data and Uninstall the updates from the “security” app.
Although at the moment the origin of this error is not entirely clear, if you follow either of these two methods the problem with your Xiaom i should disappear and not repeat itself. We recommend restarting the phone after adjusting the settings so that the phone is completely free of configuration errors that may have caused this chaotic headache.
