    Hello fellow AC people. Having issues with Greenfiy on my S7 edge. As the title indicates, I can't get it to auto-hibernate any apps. Anyone have any ideas/suggestions? Thanks!

    In Settings, Lock Screen & Security, Other Security Settings, Phone Administrators, is Greenify "On"? I don't use Greenify anymore but I seem to remember it needing this additional permission.

    Yes, it's turned on but no matter what I try, it will not automatically hibernate any apps.

    Actually, I don't see a phone administrators. I see Device Administrators. I turned it on but it still doesn't auto-hibernate apps.

    I stopped using it because of this. Not sure if it's because the phone isn't rooted or what greenify just isn't the same and not needed as it was before.

    Auto hibernate on an unrooted device needs an unsecure lockscreen (no pin or pattern), apart from administrator level permission.

    My screen is locked via fingerprint. Phone is not rooted. Since when doesn't greenify not work and/or auto hibernate apps on an unrooted phone?

    I recently started using Greenify, and I am experiencing a similar issue. I am able to auto-hibernate apps, however, I do have to "re-hibernate" several times throughout the day.

    Having a fingerprint lock means you have a backup PIN or pattern. Not sure since when, but it's written right in the app:
