As the title says, I can't find setting anymore to disable unused apps inside the Device Care.

 

This setting:

@Adi0: I see what you mean. As a workaround, Tap on 'Sleeping Apps' and add any apps you don't use, or have no intention of using. For your peace of mind, if the app is 'sleeping' it won't work in background and use any battery/data.

@Adi0: If you go to Settings > Device Care, and tap 'Optimise Now', this will clear any unused apps as part of the overall optimisation process. To go a step further, tap on 'Memory' > Make sure 'Apps Not Used Recently' is ticked, then hit 'Clean Now'.

No I meant an automatic option that disabled apps that were not used for some time. There's an option to put apps to sleep this way:Screenshot_20200213-213936_Device care.jpg

 

 

It's not here anymore.
