What is Safe mode on Android?
Before showing you how to boot Android into Safe mode, let's explain what Safe Mode is.
Safe mode is a useful problem solving tool that helps Android users find out if one of the applications they are downloading is causing problems with their device. Believe it or not, third-party applications can cause a lot of problems. If their code is bad, they can cause overheating, GPS problems, slowness, freezing, battery drain, and many other problems.
When you reboot the device in safe mode, all third-party applications will be disabled. This means you can only use the application that is included with your cellphone or tablet.
Use your phone or tablet in Safe mode for a while, say for a few hours or a day. See how your Android device behaves in Safe mode. If you look too hot or slow, use your device for a while to see if it is still slow or hot. If that is not the case, and everything works properly, then one application is definitely responsible for the problem. However, you will not get the answer which application is the culprit. You must delete third party applications one by one or to do a factory data reset. On the other hand, if the problem persists, you can try other troubleshooting steps for certain problems, do a factory reset, and if no one succeeds, visit the workshop.
How to boot your Android in Safe mode
Now that we know what this tool is, let's see how to boot Android into Safe mode for Android 4.1 or later. The steps are quite simple.
1. Press and hold the Power button
2. You will see a menu with several options
3. Press and hold Power off
1. After one or two seconds, you will be asked if you want to reboot your device in Safe mode
1 Tap OK
2. Your device will reboot and you will see Safe mode in the lower left corner of the screen.
Now that you are in Safe mode, use your device normally. If it works without problems, you can make sure one application causes a problem. The only solution is to delete third-party applications one by one. If you have too many applications, and want to start with a new device, you can do a factory reset (explained below).
To delete an application, follow the steps below:
1. Navigate to Settings
2. Tap Applications (on some device options are Application Manager, Manage applications, etc.)
3. Next, tap the "Downloaded" section
4. Tap the application you want to delete, then tap Uninstall
If you have many third-party applications and find them uninstalled one by one to spend time, you can do factory data reset. You can also try this if the problem persists in Safe mode. This will delete everything on your device, not only the application but also the settings and data. That's why you must have everything supported.
1. Go to settings
2. Next, tap Back Up & Reset
3. Tap Factory data reset
4. Tap Reset cellphone or Reset tablet.
How to turn off Safe mode
When you are ready to exit Safe mode, press and hold the Power button then tap Restart. Your device will boot into normal mode and you can use it as usual.
Third-party applications can cause problems on all Android devices, including LG G3, LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung S3 Samsung S6, Samsung S7, HTC One M9, HTC 10 and all the other models out there. Thanks to the Android Safe mode, you can easily find out if an application is to blame because it's too hot, missed, or other problems. If that's the problem, delete the application. You can always install them one by one, and see which ones cause problems.
When downloading an application from Google Play, pay attention to the comments section. See what other Android users say. If they complain a lot about battery consumption or other problems, avoid downloading the application. The good thing is that there are many applications on Google Play, so you can find similar applications that work perfectly!
