How do I start my Samsung in safe mode?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To start your Samsung device in safe mode, you can follow these steps:

1. Press and hold the Power button: Locate the Power button on your Samsung device. This is usually located on the right side or top of the device. Press and hold this button until a menu appears on the screen.

2. Tap and hold Power Off: On the menu that appears, you will see several options such as Power Off, Restart, and Emergency mode. Tap and hold the Power Off option. This will bring up a prompt asking if you want to reboot into safe mode.

3. Reboot to Safe Mode: When the Reboot to Safe Mode prompt appears, tap again or tap OK. Your device will then begin to restart.

4. Safe Mode Prompt: After the device restarts, you will see a Safe Mode prompt in the bottom-left corner of the screen. This indicates that your device has successfully entered safe mode.

In safe mode, your Samsung device will only load essential system apps and services, disabling any third-party apps that may be causing issues. This can be helpful in troubleshooting problems such as app crashes, system freezes, or other software-related issues.

While in safe mode, you can still use your device as usual, but you may notice that some features or apps are not available. This is because only the core system functions are active in safe mode.

To exit safe mode and return to normal mode, simply restart your device. Once your device restarts, it will boot back into the normal mode, and all apps and features will be available again.

It’s worth mentioning that entering safe mode may vary slightly depending on the Samsung device model and Android version you are using. The steps provided above are general guidelines that should work for most Samsung devices. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the user manual or contact Samsung support for further assistance.

Starting your Samsung device in safe mode can be done by pressing and holding the Power button, tapping and holding Power Off, then confirming the reboot into safe mode. Once in safe mode, you can troubleshoot software issues and determine if any third-party apps are causing problems.
