Greenify help you identify and put the misbehaving apps into hibernation when you are not actively using them, to stop them from lagging your device or 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.

“Aggressive Doze”, and “Doze on the Go”, maximize battery savings on Android 6+ even without root! (details in the settings).
Your phone or tablet should never become slower or more battery-hungry after installing many apps. Greenify makes your device run as smooth and lasts as the day it was purchased.
Greenify helps you to identify the bad apps and place them in hibernation. This will stop them from lagging the device or leaking the battery. They cannot do anything without being launched by you or other apps. However, they can still function fully when running in the background.
Please report bugs in the XDA forum (http://goo.gl/ZuLDnE) or the G+ community (http://goo.gl/MoszF).
Greenify will never collect your data, despite accessibility service’s capabilities. It just uses it to automate hibernation.
Important:Greenifying your app means that you know that all background functionality (services, periodic tasks, event receivers, alarms, widget updates, push messages, etc.) will be disabled during hibernation unless you are actively using the app.
If you do not rely on these apps, don’t greenify them. You should verify the impact of greenifying apps that you heavily depend on.
Greenify requires background services to enable auto-hibernation. It is extremely lightweight, with almost no CPU or battery consumption.
=== PERMISSIONS ===
