My bad. Found it. But it only restricts mobile data and not WiFi. Any non root app except greenify which helps us to achieve the same app by app?
Greenify prevents apps from running in background and not block them from using internet. I still don't know why it's not working for Wi-Fi for you since it works fine for me.

Because there is no option for restricting wifi in Galaxy and Moto phones.

Some privacy related question about Google forms...
Our institute wants us to fill Google form, link submitted to our email addresses.

When I opened Google form, it wants us to use Google account to sign in.
(What I know about this option limits response per account)
But I don't want to share my google account details / gmail address to anyone.

So by signing in to Google account for filling Google forms, my email/gmail address will be revealed to "Google form Creator"?

I opened that form link on Chrome mobile..
The name and photo associated with your Google Account will be recorded when you upload files and submit this form. Not xyz@gmail.com? Switch Account

^
Institute finally agreed to offline forms. :p

Need suggestions.. my device = Redmi Note 4 Mido.
Which Custom ROM you use?
Earlier I was using Resurrection Remix OS (till pie), but development stopped for it with no future..
I tried several custom roms - pixel experience plus, havoc os etc but they don't have all features like Resurrection Remix OS..
anyone tried? As of now using HAVOC OS
(XDA does not answer these type of questions, so asking here)
Available Android 10 Custom ROMs = Forum on XDA Developers

I use Evolution X on my Mi A1 and DerpFest on Redmi 3S. Before that I was using AOSPExtended (AEX) ROM.

Right off the assembly line
i think video calling is possible. Android naively doesn't support it. or say, there is no built in apps to use front cam other than face unlock thing in Android 4.0 but Skype or such apps can use it. vidmate insta save

I'm not sure you are referring to which post. But Android 4.0 is looong gone. If you are for some real advice ( not any sort of spam ) it's time for you to move to the latest stable version of android and hopefully a new device as well.

One question..
Do service center provide service for custom rom installed device?

I have lenovo k6 power, which battery I need to replace. I already installed local battery earlier which didn't last long.
And I am not able to boot up and backup data and reflash stock rom.
Now I want to try original battery from Lenovo Service Center..
Will they provide service for mobile or deny it? also any possibility that they will flash stock rom without asking?

Is it under warranty ?
Check with Lenovo customer care if they provide service for out of warranty. Obviously it will be chargeable if its out of warranty.

They don't care if you have stock ROM or Custom ROM. They will just inform you that they will flash it to factory settings and don't take backup also (as its customers responsibility of the data backup)
