Do you ever find yourself in the middle of something really interesting, like an intense game or browsing session, when your smartphone suddenly freezes? It is a common occurrence, especially with smartphones with low RAM. When this happens, you can force the app in question to close, then restart it.

Let’s walk you through installing and setting up an app that does a good job of helping you shut down a frozen app.

  1. First of all, you need to install an app called Hold Back to Kill on your phone. The app will be renamed “MainActivity” once you install it.
  2. When you launch the app for the first time, it takes you to a dialogue box with the words “enter in a duration in milliseconds”. Fill in with any number, then press Save and Close.
  3. After that, you need to set the accessibility option to On.

After you have done this, whenever your smartphone suddenly freezes, all you need to do is press the Back key for a few seconds. This will force the app to close.
