Safe mode can help you to track down the causes of problems you may be having with your smartphone. When you boot your phone into Safe mode, it doesn’t run any third-party apps installed on your device. If your smartphone has been overheating, suffering battery drain, or otherwise not performing properly — yet it doesn’t exhibit these issues while in Safe mode — then you know that an app you installed is the culprit.
The process for booting your phone into Safe mode can vary a little between differentAndroid devices, but getting out of Safe mode is always the same. Here’s how to do it.
That’s it. A simple restart of your Android device will turn off Safe mode.
Your device will then restart and it will say “Safe mode” in the bottom-left corner. This method also works for LG, HTC, Sony, and many other Android phones.
This method works for most Android phones and tablets.
You can uninstall problematic apps and use your phone’s core functions while inSafe mode. If you find your issue is gone in Safe mode, then you can either uninstall apps one by one and test in normal mode again to try and identify the problem app, or you can factory reset your device and selectively install apps and games, making sure to watch out for a recurrence of any problem after each install.
If your device continues to crash, overheat, or otherwise perform poorly in Safe mode, then it might be an operating system problem or a hardware issue. Try a factory reset and if that doesn’t resolve things, contact your retailer, carrier or phone manufacturer and find out about a replacement or repair.
