  • How do I activate Android safe mode?

    Safe Mode is a software mode that temporarily blocks third-party apps from running. This can be useful if your device is running slower than usual or if you think you have downloaded malware disguised as an app.

    Activate Safe Mode on Android 6.0 Marshmallow or later 

    1. Press and hold the power button
    2. When your list of options appears, tap and hold Power off
    3. When Reboot to Safe Mode appears, tap it or tap OK

    Activate Safe Mode using keys 

    1. Turn off your device
    2. Press and hold the power button until you see the animated logo appear
    3. Release the power button and press and hold the volume down button
    4. Let go when you see Safe Mode at the bottom left corner of the screen

    Turn off Safe Mode 

    1. Press and hold the power button
    2. Tap Restart
