When you restart a phone, lot of applications start without you pressing that application icon after restart. Some of these applications may start collecting data. In this guide, we help you find out which apps start when you restart your phone and how to disable unwanted startup apps.

Open [Security] application.
Go to [Manage apps] > [permissions] > [autostart].
Click on three vertical dots (settings) at the top right corner and select [show system apps].
You will now see list of apps that are enabled to start automatically when ever your phone restarts or turns on. In this case, Instagram, Pinterest and Outlook are set to autostart.
