You can also try this alternative method:

  1. Install an app called PM Plus from Play Store (or check if it is pre-installed on your phone)
  2. Open the app and tap Install. Wait for the installation to finish
  3. Once the additional install is finished, “Use it” buttons will be enabled under Permission Manager and Startup Manager icons
  4. Tap “Use it” under Permission manager (Tapping Startup manager will throw an error)
  5. “Use it” buttons will change to “Not Integrated” and “Install” button will reappear. That’s OK, do not click on any and close the PM Plus
  6. Open Phone Manager
  7. Swipe Left. Now you should see the new button there, “App auto-launch”.
  8. Tap “App auto-launch”
  9. Scroll to Eyecon and allow it to autostart.
