Is it safe to customize accessibility settings?

Yes. You can change the settings as you see fit without fear of messing up other settings of your device.

Are accessibility settings important?

Yes, I guess so, especially for people with hearing impairments, limited sight, or difficulties with interaction and dexterity. And depending on how you set your phone up, you can use some of the features under accessibility to make things a lot easier.

Will accessibility settings reset delete my files?

There are apps that use some accessibility features, are they safe?

Yeah. I have personally used an app that requires accessibility services. As long as the app is downloaded from the Play Store, it’s most likely safe, otherwise, Google would have removed it already. Third-party apps can only use accessibility services. In fact, you can always find them under Installed services in accessibility.
