How To kill Unused Background Applications running on your Android Phone
1. To Manually Kill Apps running in the Background of your Android device
2. How To Automatically kill Unused apps using Auto-kill Applications
You may want to avoid the stress of killing those applications manually as described earlier, the use of some applications on Google play can do the trick. To use this method, simply go to Google Play from your android phone and search for auto-kill via the search bar, you will be provided with various auto-kill apps to choose from BUT for those who do not want to be faced with too many choices and are interested in a trusted application, i recommend you use “AutoKill Task Manager” App
I use the AutoKill Task Manager App because it is very easy to use and does not require much settings, just download and run the application. It will automatically Kill those background applications as the screen goes off.
NB: You can always monitor those applications running on your Android phone by following the steps highlighted in the first sub-heading of this post.
