Closing blocked apps even when they are operating in the background - Person - 08-14-2019

Hello,

This might be a niche request, but I think adding the ability to close apps even if they are operating in the background (e.g. minimized or obscured behind other apps) would be very helpful in resolving a number of potential cheating methods for FocusMe.

Hi, did you consider blocking by Process Name and then enabling the option Settings->System->Blocking of Background Apps (by Process Name) ?

Unfortunately part of my issue comes from finding cheating methods in apps that I otherwise need access to, so it would be very helpful if the blocking of background apps option also covered other block types such as window title and process path.

OK then. I do agree it would be useful. So we will consider doing this when possible. Thanks!
