Brevent 1

Here’s Brevent APK Android Tools APP Free Download. Brevent can app-standby or force stop apps, prevent apps from running in a long time. It doesn’t require ROOT, nor modify the system. Furthermore, it may don’t work well on ROOT or modified system. There is an experimental feature to start Brevent Server without adb, please read guide – permissions.

Brevent supports Android 5.0 to Android O DP3, requires “USB debugging” in “developer options”. I mainly used it on Google Pixel with Android 7.1.2.

There are a lot of apps which claim to prevent apps from running. However, most of them require ROOT or do a system modification via Xposed or patching or unlocked bootloader.
