How Do I put my Samsung Galaxy S8 into Safe Mode?

Last Update Date : Apr 12. 2018

Safe Mode allows your device to run without any third party applications, such as games or launchers, just the essential programs to run your device.


If you are experiencing issues with your device such as freezing or running slowly, it is a good idea to run the device in to see if it performs better.


If the device does begin to perform better without any third party applications, it is advised that you un-install the problematic app, or, if you do not know which app it is, un-install them one at a time with the latest app first and then test your device to see which was causing the issue.
