What you need for linking apps:
● rooted permission.
● a second partition upon your SD card.
You should have two partitions upon SD card and both should be primary.
The first FAT partition is your standard SD card storage. The second partition is used for application files and can be ext2, ext3, ext4, f2fs or FAT.
You need to use a non-FAT file system (ext2, ext3, ext4 or f2fs) upon your second partition in order to url app’s private data files. Because the FAT file system (FAT16, FAT32 or exFAT) does not bolster UNIX file ownership or permissions and causes a security breakdown of app’s private files.
Link2SD Plus can move app’s private data files if you have a non-FAT partition
Link2SD does not create the second partition, you need to create it yourself. You can use any partition administrator such as Minitool, Paragon, Easeus etc. for this.
When you connect your phone to PC as mass storage, android-os unmounts the first FAT partition but the second partition remains mounted. Therefore linked applications is not affected and can be run without problems.
Link2SD is unfetter (ad supported) application.
