In developer settings I can stop both Facebook and Instagram but those pesky apps just bounce right back within seconds. One reason I moved from Apple to Android was to be able to control my device and I find this frustrating. Is my only option to delete these apps and just run them from a mobile web browser?
I don't want to be told that these apps need to be running all the time and I can just ignore it. They can run when I start them until I close them. This is for data, privacy and battery usage concerns whether real or perceived I want this control of my device.
Also I do not want to root my phone and keep the OS stock. Running 7.1.1 on a Nexus 5x
