How to use Safe Mode on Galaxy mobile devices

Last Update Date : May 09. 2019
Start Safe Mode

If your phone is running slower than expected or freezing (with no pop-up notification letting you know which application is causing it), using Safe Mode can help you better understand what's causing this and what you can do to fix it. 


Launching your phone in Safe Mode allows only the core applications to run on your phone enabling you to observe its performance without the impact of your third party applications. If your device functions correctly in Safe Mode, it is most likely that the issue lies with a 3rd party application that can be uninstalled to resolve the problem.

Starting Your Phone in Safe Mode

1 Turn your phone off. To do this, press and hold the Power button and tap Power off .
2 When the Samsung logo displays, press and hold the Volume down key until the lock screen displays.
3 When the lock screen displays Safe mode will be shown in the lower-left corner of the screen.

Exit Safe Mode:

To turn off Safe Mode, simply restart your phone

Note: When you exit Safe Mode, some of your customization options (Wallpapers, Themes, Etc.) may be reset to default.
