Even novice computer users know how useful safe mode can be for troubleshooting faulty apps. Since smartphones are no less than pocket computers, it’s essential to have the option to reboot Android to safe mode. Safe mode on your Android enables you to use the core functionality of your device, keeping third-party apps at bay.

Reboot Android to Safe Mode

From the home screen of your Android device, press and hold the power button until the power menu pops up. However, instead of tapping the “Power off” button, press and hold it until you see the “Reboot to safe mode” window pop up.

Tap “OK” on the pop-up window so that you can reboot Android to safe mode. While your device is in safe mode, you won’t be able to access any of the apps you have downloaded. If you’re constantly facing issues from a specifically downloaded app, you can reboot Android to safe mode and uninstall that particular app.

If you aren’t really sure whether the problem is related to a downloaded app or the software itself, safe mode will help you determine the issue. Once you have figured out the problem, simply reboot your device to exit safe mode and boot into system. Since the safe mode is all-or-nothing kind of a feature, all the downloaded apps are blocked in safe mode.
