How do I start my Samsung smartphone or tablet in Safe Mode?

You can boot up your device in Safe Mode if you wish to troubleshoot whether or not added applications are causing problems with the device. Safe mode will load only basic system software.

 

Make sure your device is turned off.

 

Press and hold the Power key to boot up your device.

 

After the start-up animation begins to display, press and hold the Volume down key.

 

When the lock screen is displayed Safe mode is displayed in the lower-left corner of the screen. To boot your device in normal mode again restart your device.
