It’s actually a system-wide Android feature known as Safe Mode.

And switching it on with a Samsung is very simple.

“Some apps that you download can cause problems with your phone,” Google explained.

Google notes that Safe Mode is a great option when your Android phone is restarting itself, freezing, crashing, or running slowly.

This can help you figure out if it’s a new app causing your problems – or something else entirely.

Once you have identified the problematic app, you can delete it from your device.

Note that Safe Mode also automatically enables Airplane Mode.

You must turn this off to access features like GPS, Wi-Fi, and phone calls.

How to Enable Safe Mode on Samsung

According to Samsung, there are two ways to start your device in Safe Mode.

The first is to restart: press and hold the power button until Power Off appears on the screen.

If your handset doesn’t have a power button, use the method you would normally use to turn your device off.

Now tap and hold the Power off icon until you see the Safe Mode option.

Tap Safe Mode and then wait for the device to restart.

If you turn on your device in safe mode instead of restarting it, the method is different.

Once the Samsung logo appears by itself, press and hold the volume down button.

This will put the device into safe mode.

Once you boot your phone into safe mode, use your phone and check if the problem is resolved.

If your phone is working normally, it’s likely that an app was causing your problem.

But if your phone is still giving you trouble, it’s probably not an app’s fault.

To exit Safe Mode, simply press and hold the Power button and then tap Restart.

Once you’ve done that, consider removing recently downloaded apps that might be causing problems.

Maybe you have a shady app that is intentionally giving you trouble.

“Restart your phone normally after each removal,” Google explained.
