menu_default hide_default

Most people don't know about Safe Mode. Yet it is one of the most useful features on your Android device. If there is a problem on your Android device and you can not figure out about it. By putting the device in safe mode, you can very easily determine the cause of the problem and whether you are able to fix it. This is because when your device is in safe mode, third-party apps on the device will not run and you can easily distinguish if one of them may be the main cause of the issue.

You will also notice that some of the non-feature related issues that your device may be facing such as overheating or battery drain are not there when the device is in safe mode. At the very least it is a great way to continue using your device while you find a permanent solution to the problem.

What Is the Safe Mode?


When you turn on your Android device, it usually runs a series of apps and features all designed to help you enjoy the experience of having an Android device. But when the device is facing problems, all of these features and apps can make it very difficult to determine what the problem could be simply because there are too many of them. But this is where Safe mode comes in. When you put your device in safe mode, all these features and apps are automatically disabled, allowing you to determine the problem and figure out how to fix it. Safe mode is, therefore, the best diagnostic tool on your device; with this, you can easily troubleshoot the device.

How to Enter and Use Safe Mode to Fix Your Device

Entering Safe mode on your device is a very simple process. But before putting the device in Safe mode, we recommend rebooting it first. Sometimes a reboot will fix whatever problem you are having and you won't need safe mode at all.

1. Reboot the device:

Follow these simple steps to reboot the device:

Step 1: Press and hold the "Power" button on your device until you see the power menu on the screen.

Step 2: Tap "Restart "and the device will power off before powering back up again.


If you don't see the Restart option, tap "Power off "and wait for the device to "Power down "completely. Once it is off, press the  Power button until the device logo appears and the device powers on.

2.Put the device in safe mode

But if a reboot doesn't work, follow these simple steps to put the device in safe mode to determine if the apps are causing the problem.

Step 1: Press and hold the "Power" button.

Step 2: When the power menu appears on the screen, tap and hold the "Power Off" option.

Step 3: The Reboot to Safe Mode option should appear. Tap "OK" to allow the device to boot in safe mode.

Step 4: When the device restarts, you should see safe mode at the bottom of the screen.


If you haven't seen the Reboot on Safe Mode option appear in some Android devices in this case, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Press and hold the"Power off "button and press and hold the "Restart "button.

Step 2: When the logo appears on the screen, press the Volume down button and the words "Safe Mode" will appear at the bottom of the screen indicating the device is in safe mode.

If the device is working just fine while in Safe mode, then third-party apps on the device could be the culprit. It is, therefore, a good idea to uninstall these apps.


How to Exit Safe Mode

Once you have removed the problem apps, you want to get out of safe mode. The easiest way to exit safe mode is to reboot the device. All Android devices will boot in normal mode after a restart. So if you are done with safe mode, simply follow these steps to reboot the device:

Step 1: Press and hold the "Power button" on the device.

Step 2: When the power options appear on the screen, tap "Restart" and wait for the device to reboot.
