How to kill a running process in Android?« Back to Previous Page

Here is a snippet that kills all the running processes (except system ones which application can't kill)

In your Activity put:

ActivityManager manager = (ActivityManager) getSystemService(ACTIVITY_SERVICE);
List<RunningAppProcessInfo> runningProcesses = manager.getRunningAppProcesses();
if (RunningAppProcessInfo p: runningProcesses) {
manager.killBackgroundProcesses(p.processName);
}

In your AndroidManifest.xml file put
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.KILL_BACKGROUND_PROCESSES"/>
Does anyone know other way to kill a background process?
