Hide 'running in the background' Notification app for Oreo does exactly what you'd hope
While there is a great deal to like about Android 8.0 Oreo, the latest version of Google's mobile operating system is not without issues. Some users are wondering whether or not their phones will get the upgrade, and some who have upgraded are experiencing problems with data usage.
One niggle that has caused a lot of complaints is Oreo's notification that there are apps running in the background. It's Google's attempt to warn people about apps that might be draining their battery, but many people are more than a little irked by the pestering. Thankfully, there's a free app to kill the irritation.

Hide "running in the background" Notification is not only free of charge, it is also open source, and the only permission it needs on your device is Notification Listener. Give it a shot!
