Android’s Battery Optimization-Doze
Doze mode is been improved in Android generations which were made with android marshmallow. The purpose of this mode is to hibernate the applications when they are out of your use that was a good option for your battery as the app was not using so much battery in the background, but not all of the applications are always running in the background due to their poor built quality.
When to Allow an App to Avoid Doze:
There are few apps which surely need to run in the background all the times like taster or VPN services. As you know that the Doze mode is useful in many cases but sometimes it can actually interrupt the application’s performance. For example, you are using a VPN and Doze mode is on it will hibernate the app and you will be back on your unprotected network where you can be tracked
So for this type of problems you need to whitelist the application from the battery optimization.

1 . Open the settings then select the battery option and tap on the dots in the right top corner.
2 . Now select the Battery Optimization there will be drop down menu at the top of the list and here you have to select the ALL apps.
3 . A list will appear now scroll down and find out the application you want to whitelist and tap on it.
