Closing All Activities and Launching a Specific Activity in Android

This can be helpful when you want to start a fresh navigation flow or redirect the user to a specific entry point within your app.

1: Close All Activities

To close all activities and bring the user to a specific activity, we'll use the Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TASK and Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK flags.

// Close all activities and launch the desired activity
Intent intent = new Intent(context, TargetActivity.class);

2: Define the Target Activity

Make sure to replace TargetActivity.class with the name of the activity you want to launch.

3: Handle Activity Stack

Using FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TASK clears the existing activity stack, and FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK starts the target activity as a new task, ensuring a fresh navigation flow.

4: Implement in Your App

Add this code snippet where you want to close all activities and launch the specific activity, such as a logout button or a navigation flow reset.

By using the Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_CLEAR_TASK and Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK flags, you can easily close all activities and launch any specific activity in your Android app. This method provides a clean navigation experience and can be useful in various scenarios, such as logouts, splash screens, or redirections to specific entry points within your app. Happy coding!
