Srivishnu Ramakrishnan

App optimization sounds great until it says after every reboot or straight for 24 hours. Nothing is optimal about it, then. It obviously doesn’t work as intended and after an update, it can be quite common. You may also wonder how your Android apps stop battery optimization. For that, we have got you covered and we will show you 8 methods on how to stop optimizing apps on Android smartphones.

Stop Optimizing Apps On Android

Here are some easy ways which have proven useful to stop App Optimization on Android devices:

1. Wipe Cache Partition

For many, it completely removes this problem by wiping the cache partition. It is normal that the message appears once again when rebooting, but not every reboot afterward. It is nice to wipe the cache as compared to factory resetting where all your personal information will not be removed. Yes, some passwords may have to be entered again, but that’s much less messy than the method below.


Follow the below steps to wipe the cache partition on your Android Smartphone;

  1. On a large number of devices, you use the power and volume down buttons on your device simultaneously to enter Recovery Mode.Stop-Optimizing-Apps-Android-2
  2.  When the manufacturer logo pops up on our device’s screen then release the Power button.
  3. Now you have to navigate with the help of volume up and down button to the “Recovery” option.
  4. If an error screen showing “No Command” shows up, then long press the Power button and then press the Volume Up button. Release the buttons in reverse order i.e. Volume Up button first then Power button.
  5. Reboot your device.

2. Unplug Device Before Restarting

This message/problem occurs in several instances only when you reboot when your phone loads. Because it is quite easy to change this custom, it’s not bad to try. The issue is often remedied by a subsequent Google Play update.

3. Uninstall Apps That Misbehave

Having installed an app, did this problem start? If that is the case, try to uninstall. If this isn’t solving it, reinstalling these apps is easy enough, so it’s just worth it. Such an error is not caused by apps such as Zedge, TrueCaller, TextPlus, MyFitnessPal and even Facebook. If your app uses an extraordinary battery amount, you might need to uninstall them. This method is crucial to how apps can be stopped optimizing in Android.

4. Remove Apps from Standby Mode

This method is not going to help you if you are reading this article because you are facing problems with apps repeatedly and optimizing at boot. Another issue for people with app optimization has nothing to do with optimizing apps, instead, sacrificing app performance to optimize the battery.

You are at the right place at ThemeFoxx if you are experiencing this. We will show you how battery optimization for specific applications can be turned off. Standby mode from Android Marshmallow sleeps your apps to preserve battery, but maybe you don’t want to.

Follow these simple steps;

  1. Go to the Battery Optimization menu. It can be found under Settings> Battery and in some devices it will be Settings> Applications.Stop-Optimizing-Apps-Android-4
  2. Go to the three dots or Advanced menu option and select Battery Optimization option.
  3. Select “All Apps” or “Apps” and locate your target App.
  4. Ensure that the app is not selected for optimization.
  5. Tap Done if needed. Don’t be surprised if your battery life has an adverse impact. You are negating the optimization configuration of your battery, but you may be able to do it if you have a messaging app that you need to receive data continuously from.

5. Remove and Reinsert SD Card

Some users report this problem with encrypting of their SD card or with installing apps on their cards rather than in their internal memory. Whatever the problem, it is easy to find out if the SD card is present.

  • Power Off your smartphone and remove your SD Card.
  • Reinsert your SD Card and move all the apps to your internal memory.
  • Format your SD Card by going to Settings> Storage and select Format SD Card or Erase SD Card, depending on your device.
