Have you ever observed your phone operating at a sluggish pace, akin to a snail navigating through molasses? Perhaps you’ve noticed a rapid depletion of its battery, comparable to the fleeting nature of a politician’s promise. It might be because there are more than 1 apps that are running in the Background. Here we are going to give you some simpler ways that you can use to easily fix that. Don’t let the Android apps run in the background and take up all your resources by using this fix.

3 Ways to Disable Android Apps Running in the Background

1. Quick and temporary methods:

  • Force stop: Open Settings > Apps, select the app you want to stop, and tap Force Stop. This will only stop the app until you launch it again.
  • Use the Recent Apps screen: Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Recent Apps screen. Then, swipe sideways on the app card you want to close.

2. More permanent methods:

  • Disable the app: Open Settings > Apps, select the app you want to disable, and tap Disable. This will prevent the app from running at all, including in the background. However, keep in mind that disabling essential apps or system apps can cause problems.
  • Restrict background data: Open Settings > Network & internet > Mobile network or Wi-Fi (depending on your connection), tap the app you want to restrict, and toggle off Background data. This will allow the app to access the internet only when you’re actively using it.
  • Optimize Battery Usage: Open Settings > Battery > Battery optimization, select the app you want to optimize, and choose the desired option like Optimized, Unrestricted, or Adaptive battery. This can help manage the app’s background activity while considering your battery usage.

3. Advanced methods:

  • Developer options: Open Settings > About phone and tap Build number repeatedly until you see “You are now a developer!”. Then, go back to Settings and tap Developer options. Here, you can find various options to limit background activity, like Background process limits and Don’t keep activities.

Remember: Disabling or restricting background activity can affect how some apps work. For example, apps that rely on notifications or location updates may not function properly. Make sure you understand the potential consequences before taking any action.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind:

  • Android automatically manages background activity to optimize battery life. In most cases, you don’t need to manually disable apps.
  • Only disable or restrict background activity for apps you don’t use often or that are draining your battery excessively.
  • Regularly update your Android version and apps to benefit from performance improvements and battery optimizations.
