Permission to "automatically start at boot"
Question: I see that the app has permission to "automatically start at boot". Can this be turned on/off in settings? I don't want another app running constantly in the background. I just want a tool for periodic troubleshooting/reference.
Answer: This permission is used to receive a boot completion message, at which point the app checks its settings. The app will immediately stops if nothing has been set. Here follows the app settings which can trigger activity:
- History logging is enabled (default)
- Widget has been added on home screen
- Notifications are enabled
If none of the above is enabled, the app will not run in the background.
NB: The only way on Android to receives standard battery data is through system events which are registered within the package.
