3rd Party Hotspot Apps Disabled When Screen Turns Off

Any third party hotspot app I use is being disabled when my screen turns off on the phone. I have tried everything I can thing of from optimizing battery settings to making these apps never sleep but each time the hotspot app disables until I turn the screen back on and/or unlock the phone. This does not happen on the phone's native hotspot app though. Any thoughts on this and how to fix this issue?
