About this app

Brevent, black prevent, can app-standby (since Android 6.0, not supported on some devices) or force-stop apps without root, prevent apps from running in long time.

Brevent never brevent apps not in Bervent list. If apps are launched then quit (tapping Back or so), Brevent will app-standby them; if apps timed out in standby, or swiped from recents screen, Brevent will force-stop them. Whenever apps are running without activity, Brevent will force-stop them.

Apps in Brevent list can be set "allow sync" to receive notifications or do sync jobs. Brevent won't standby "allow sync" apps, and Brevent won't force-stop "allow sync" apps with notifications or running in background.

Brevent supports Android 6 to Android 13, requires "USB debugging" or "Wireless debugging" (since Android 11) in "developer options".

In Android 8 - Android 14, Brevent won't work if debugging is off or USB option is changed. If debugging turns off when you unplug the cable, please change USB option. Normally, it's OK to keep USB option as default.

Excellent app! Very easy to set up without root, absolutely amazing WITH root! Even better if you pay as I have, you get access to easy to use App Ops, deny apps wake lock privileges, or disallow them from running in the background. You can also suspend apps with after payment. Helps on top of restricting battery use of your apps, easy on memory, uses only ~388MB. 1 process only. Excellent app, a staple on my rooted phone, try it and you will see why!

I don't get this it's so confusing. It says apps with allow sync will not be brevented but how do we choose those apps? There's literally no other way to pick specific apps I want to brevent. There's premade list that I can't enabled or disabled. UI is very bad compared to greenify. I don't even know if this is working or not. Can't you just copy greenify's UI? It's dead anyway. The creator won't mind.
