This question already has an answer here:

First off, I know this question has already been asked three times, but since I can't comment (don't have enough points), I'll just create a new post!

So, none of the workarounds mentioned in the other three questions solves the problem. First, I tried killing the background process, but I still get skype messages, for example. Then, I tried to force quit the application, but when something triggers it, it loads again!

For now, I decided to uninstall it and install it whenever I want to actually use it. But the lack of respect is really annoying. And my feeling is that it's intentional, not a bug.

Anyway... Has anyone found something that really works, except installing a firewall or installing another application that will specifically kill skype?

Thanks and sorry for asking a question that has already been asked...

    See this: android.stackexchange.com/questions/30332/… I would suggest using Greenify. Caveat: Requires ROOT. – geffchang Feb 19 '14 at 15:50
  • "geffchang" thanks for the link. I'll have a look. "GAThrawn" I already read that question and as I said, it doesn't solve the problem. At least not with the current skype version. – panos Feb 19 '14 at 17:02

    @geffchang caveat removed. Greenify at least does no longer require root. Though for its full powers, you will still need it :) – Izzy Feb 19 '14 at 17:15
