[App] Greenify


GreenifyGreenify : Never should your phone or tablet become slower and battery hungrier after lots of apps installed.

With Greenify, your device can run almost as smoothly and lastingly as it did the first day you had it!

NEW: “Aggressive Doze” and “Doze on the Go” to maximize the battery saving on Android 6.x, even without root! (details explained in settings)

Greenify help you identify and put the misbehaving apps into hibernation when you are not using them, to stop them from lagging your device and leeching the battery, in a unique way! They can do nothing without explicit launch by you or other apps, while still preserving full functionality when running in foreground, similar to iOS apps!

Please report bugs in the XDA forum ( or G+ community (

Greenify NEVER EVER collects your personal data despite the capability of accessibility service, it just takes advantage of it to automate things.

IMPORTANT: Greenifying an app implies that you are aware that all the background functionality (service, periodic task, event receiver, alarm, widget update, push message) of this app will become out of service during the hibernation except when you are using this app.

NEVER greenify alarm clock apps, instant messaging apps unless you don’t rely on them. Please do verify the impact of greenified apps on which you heavily rely.

Compared to other popular tools aimed for the similar purpose, Greenify offers the following advantages:

Unlike the Freeze feature in TitaniumBackup Pro that totally disable the app, you can still use your app as usual, share content with it. No need to freeze & defrozen it.

Unlike Autostarts, you can benefit from almost all of its advantages, without needing to deal with the complexity and risk of obscure app components, and never lose functionality when app is actively running.

Unlike any XXX Task Killer, your device will never fall into the cat-mouse-game of stealthy-running and aggressive killing, which unnecessarily consumes more battery juice.

Note: Greenify does need a background running service for auto-hibernation to work. It is designed and implemented in extremely lightweight, with an average RAM footprint less than 5M, and nearly zero CPU and battery consumption.

In case you cannot install from Play Store:


INTERNET: Needed by “Raise Your Voice” program to send back only small amount of anonymous statistics data, without privacy information. You can opt-out at any time.
DRAW OVER OTHER APP: To show guide layer over the app setting UI of system in non-root mode.
GET ACCOUNTS & WRITE SYNC SETTINGS: Control the account sync of apps if its sync task is too frequent.
DISABLE YOUR SCREEN LOCK & BIND ACCESSIBILITY SERVICE: For automatic hibernation to work on non-root devices.


Why not support Android 2.x?
It seems that automatic hibernation is not working.
Some of my greenified apps (e.g. Google Maps) seems not hibernating.
I want to greenify system apps!
De-greenified apps still got no push notification!

Greenify user reviews :

Thanks for the app! If I could, I would pay for this app. Only a student right now. But will pay in about an year  with this no more annoying candy crush notifications on facebook  appear on my phone

It seems to be a legit app. No more notifications from hibernated apps. I just wish they can implement an option to hibernate low-priority system apps, like Google Chrome. And the latest update makes the Agressive Doze a life-changing feature

Very useful It’s useful to keep those pesky apps from eating your ram, but unfortunately some apps I used to greenify (facebook and messenger) became a system app which is strange, I do not know why did ASUS decided to make them as system app.
