How to start my Galaxy device in Safe mode
Safe mode lets you run your Android device using its basic interface, with simplified menus and without most third-party applications. You can think of it as a diagnostic tool to help identify and fix problems on your device.
There are two ways to start your device in Safe mode. You can either reboot your device or power on your device in Safe mode.
