To negate such problems for the Pixel XL, unofficial builds for Magisk by XDA member goodwin_c are available for download and have been updated to the latest Magisk V13.3 build.
Google is closing down on Magisk with new SafetyNet checks which were put in place a few days ago. However, the latest Magisk version 13.3 along with an updated Magisk Manager V5.1.1 restore SafetyNet on your device. With Magisk being one of the vastly utilized root gaining method hands down on Android Nougat and above, XDA member topjohnwu has promised to keep supporting Magisk come hell or high water.
