    What are the ways to run broadcast receivers/services etc. in the background, in Chinese phones like Redmi, Oppo, Vivo etc., without providing 'Autostart' permission?

    Currently, to make my app run a broadcast receiver in the background, in Chinese phones, I'm taking the user to the Autostart settings screen on app open - where they can provide Autostart permission to my app.
    As I suspect that the user might feel intimidated on having to go to the settings screen to provide Autostart permission, I was wondering if there is a more friendly way to get the Autostart permission from user, or any other way to make the app do work in background.

    Please help.
    Thanks a lot!

    'More friendly'?

    As in 'sneaky', or 'I don't want them to know that the app is going to be doing this'?
