Samsung Safe Mode

Samsung Galaxy devices powered by the Android operating system come with a feature called Safe Mode. Through this guide, you can be learning what is Safe mode on Samsung phones, how to activate it, and how it’s helpful to troubleshoot apps.

What is Safe Mode?

Safe Mode on Samsung phones lets your Galaxy device run as normal but restricts third-party apps from being used. When you put your phone in Safe Mode and no longer experience the issue, you’ve determined that the problem is not in the device’s operating system.

Instead, it’s likely from an app that’s been downloaded onto your device. While in Safe Mode, your phone will only have access to core apps that were pre-installed in the phone at the factory. It makes it quite easier to make sure the phone and its operating system are completely error-free and there’s no need for repair.

How to activate Safe Mode

To activate Safe Mode, hold the power key until the Power off icon appears. Now, press and hold the Power off icon until the Safe Mode prompt appears, finally, select Safe Mode to confirm. Once your device has powered on, you should see the words “Safe Mode” in the lower right/left corner of your screen.

How to troubleshoot apps

In case the problem doesn’t occur while in Safe Mode, you’ve determined that the problem is caused by a third-party app that was downloaded to your Samsung Galaxy. So, it’s time to remove the suspected apps and services due to which your device started causing problems.

  1. Remove apps downloaded around the time the problem began.

How to exit Safe Mode

To exit Safe Mode, simply restart your Samsung Galaxy device and it will reboot normally. Meanwhile, you can also enter Safe Mode by pressing the Power key, touching and holding the Power off icon, and then touching the Safe Mode icon.
