Hello,

This function requires Android root privileges.

If you use ADB debugging, you'll find that this command am force-stop packageName works.

However, in the current Android phones, Google does not allow users to obtain root privileges for security reasons.

Therefore, it is no possible to implement this function to force-stop an other app.

Best Regards,

Alec Liu.
