It is not possible to check it before launching main activity. Because main activity is your entry point in your application.

To save private data you can use file, database. And if you want to access this data in other application then use ContentProvider. If you google on this you will get lot of tutorials.

What do you hope to achieve by running code before an Activity is created? Why can't this be part of the Activity's onCreate method?

Also please help me how to save application private data in device with an example.

Sounds to me like you could use Preferences to flag whether user wants auto-sign on or not. In onCreate() of your activity, check the value of this flag and initiate appropriate code flow.
