How To Deactivate Safe Mode on Android

March 2018

You may find that you Android device has gone into Safe mode without your meaning for it to. This can be caused by repeated application crashes or simply by you accidentally pressing the combination of buttons that activates it.

This how-to will introduce you to several ways of deactivating Safe mode on your Android.

Simple Restarting of Your Device

Sometimes, a simple restart of your Android smartphone will cause it to revert back to Normal mode.

Forced Restarting of Your Smartphone

If the classic restart is unsuccessful, try performing a forced restart. Begin by turning off your phone, then turning it back on while pressing the Power + </bold>Volume -</bold> buttons simultaneously.

If the option is available, you can also try removing the battery, waiting roughly 10 seconds, then replacing the battery.

Uninstalling of an Application

If the aforementioned tips haven't worked, the issue may be caused by the fact that you have recently downloaded a faulty program. Locate any recently downloaded applications and uninstall them.

Restart your device, which should now be out of Safe mode.

Restoring Android Device Factory Settings

If none of the above solutions have worked, then you will need to restore your phone to its factory settings. This means that all of your personal settings and data will be lost, so this option is a last resort. You should also consider backing up any information that you'd like to keep before continuing.

The first way to do this is via the Settings menu. Go to Settings > Save and restore > Restore > Restore now.

The second way is via Recovery mode. This will come in handy if you can't access your settings due to the fact that you are stuck in Safe mode. To find out how to do so, please visit our FAQ on the subject.
