Why does Pairs have a process and service active? I just noticed under Settings / Developer / Running Services that Pairs is listed there. Its been literally days since it was used...
Update: Even after stopping, the process and service later appeared. Clearing auto-boot and keep-awake AppOps had zero lasting effect.

Pairs is now uninstalled. When needed I might install to make a backup or restore, but it will immediately be uninstalled after.

This user cares about giving apps free and unrestricted access to my phone.

I fixed background process sometimes starting with v1.2, it shouldn't run at all in the background when exiting with the back button.

I am on Android 7.1 Nitrogen rom. Someone in that forum recommended this but it won't install for me. It just says can't open file when I try to install.
Try installing apk by launching it with a third party file explorer instead of the notification or the stock download manager.

    Any hope for Magisk support? I just went to it and it's pretty fantastic was getting ready to upgrade to the latest version of pure Nexus when I found out I can't use this anymore. I never get a root request.

    Exact same here.

    There is a solution to get it work with magisk. I really don't know why it works but is the same solution for tasker not detecting root.

    http://tasker.dinglisch.net/userguide/en/faqs/faq-problem.html#root

    Just add "modversion" to your build.prop file and reboot, I added it to the top of mine and worked.
