Why doesn't the "Exit when time is over" feature work on my Xiaomi/Redmi phone?

Unfortunately, many Chinese manufacturers, including Xiaomi and Redmi, use a modified version of the Android OS, leading to compatibility issues with apps designed for the standard Android OS by Google.

To resolve this on your device, you need to manually enable an additional permission. Go to minimalist phone settings (gear wheel on the page with all apps) -> Device settings -> Apps -> find and select "minimalist phone" -> enable "Open new windows while running in the background." This should allow the feature to function properly.

Enable the "Open new windows while running in the background" permission.
