That's a new feature added by Google in Android 8.0 and will be fixed with 8.1 release. There are some apps that can do this trick though, like this one.

Re: Apps Running in the Background Notifications

Hi @hhnnrryyww;

 

With the last version update (47.1.A.12.75) you can get rid of this notification simply going to the Notifications menu, selecting app Android System, scroolling down to "Applications Running in the Background" and unselect it. At least I did it in my XZ Premium with the same software.

Hope it helps!

The detailed pathway for this settings is as follows:

Settings -> Apps & notifications -> App info -> tap on the 3-dot icon top right corner -> Show system -> scroll and find "Android System" -> App notifications -> disable "Apps running in the background" channel.

Hi, I have an xperia xz1 compact and have followed you pathway (thank you!) but it doesn't allow me to disable it, the toggle is greyed out. Any ideas?

Hi @lindib;

 

You need to have the last firmware update (47.1.A.12.75) or else it will be greyed out.

Re: Apps Running in the Background Notifications

OMG thank you, this was driving me crazy!!! Like I know avg is running in the background, I want to be protected.

I've seen the notification now go away. 

It wouldn't let me swip it off the screen!!!
