App Events

This screen shows all apps listening to various events that are triggered by Android system or other apps. It allows to control startup apps (BOOT_COMPLETED event type) as well.

You can disable any of those, which will prevent the app from receiving such events. When checked, the event is enabled and the app will receive it. When unchecked, the app will not receive the event.

Note that its the app components that are actually disabled, and each component may listen to multiple events. So when disabling a single event, other events might get disabled simultaneously.

You can alternatively select a particular group of events to see which apps are listening to such events, including the BOOT_COMPLETED event for startup apps. 

 

To prevent an app from starting on boot, you need to disable its boot completed event, and all other events that may occur at the same time or later, such as network connectivity events and many others. Please note that apps using account synchronizations will start regardless of all events because synchronizations use a predefined interval to tirgger the app start.
