    As I speculated before, I'll reiterate.

    I think it's a system process, specifically one that watches all the others, and "ages out" the ones that have been idle too long.

    It says something like "Age Out Worker" use the battery lee's than 1%. If it's an app, I haven't installed it on my phone. Does it form part of any other apps, I do not know.

    "Age Out Worker"
    Would it be "Auth Work Hoster" by any chance? I see that on one of my 2 phones running W10M. That one had a Reset yesterday and I had a verification issue getting into my Microsoft Account (my text copy of the auth code never came through and I had to use back button and pick another method). Also, my Google Email account needed attention after the Reset. I got a few nags about it. I believe that is the OS trying to reconcile an account authorization.

    Probably some background task related to W10. While I don't have "Age Out Worker", I do see a couple of non-app items in my list...
    MsgMmsTransport
    HotSpotHost

    Age Out Worker is a peculiar term.
