How to Get out of Safe Mode Android?
As I said earlier, not all of us know how to take off safe mode. So here in this post, you are going to know of the same. Plus, I will give you an overview of what safe mode means.
What does Safe Mode Mean?
Safe mode in Android is more of a troubleshooting method to resolve the problems with your phone, like unusual data usage or huge battery drain.
In safe mode, you will not be able to run any third-party apps. So, you can get to know whether the apps you downloaded is causing the issue or not.
Safe mode uses only minimal features of the Android. Whenever you find your device dead and not booting up normally, you can reboot safe mode to check what the cause of the issue is.
Moreover, you may have some new messages and notifications at the time the device starts behaving weirdly. You can read all of them making use of the safe mode.
Do you still have the question, ‘what is safe mode on my phone?’.
So it’s time to explore the core section that is how to take phone off safe mode.
How to Get Phone off Safe Mode?
So here we are, approaching the core of this post. Are you ready to find out how to get out of safe mode Android? Here you go!
Method 1: Do a Normal Reboot
Here you are going to reboot your phone normally. In most of the cases, this will help you get rid of safe mode on Android.
Follow the steps given below to turn off safe mode on Android.
Step 1: Take your phone and press the power button. (The button on the side of the phone you press for waking up your phone is the power button).
Step 2: Now, you will get a bunch of options like Power Off, Restart, Enable Flight Mode, etc. From those, you need to choose the second one.
Hopefully, this will help you disable the Android safe mode.
Proceed to the next step if you don’t find the above method useful.
Method 2: Power off Your Device
This process is similar to the first one. Here, we are going to power off the device instead of rebooting.
Step 1: Press the power button.
Step 2: From the upcoming options, choose Power Off.
Step 3: Allow the device to rest on that off mode for a while and then, turn your device back on.
Method 3: Pull out the Battery
If both of the above methods do not come to your rescue, you can try out this method. Unfortunately, this won’t help with your phone having a non-removable battery.
Step 1: Pick up your Android phone and remove the back case.
Step 2: Removing the back case will reveal some of the interior parts of your phone. Now, what we are going to do is pulling out the battery from there as you have a removable one.
Step 3: Do not do anything after removing the battery because it needs some time to discharge all the capacitors.
Step 4: After some time, turn on your device and there you are.
Method 4: Power Key and Volume Rocker
Most of the time, the chaos of not knowing how to get out of safe mode Android happens because you don’t know how you get in there. A majority of people reach safe mode by pressing the power button and one of the volume rockers.
We are going to use it to take off safe mode.
Step 1: Power off your device, by the way, I shared as method 2.
Step 2: Press the power button and one of the volume rockers for some time. And you will be out of safe mode when the phone completes booting up.
Note: – You may have to try with both the volume buttons individually if you find one not working.
Method 5: Factory Reset
If none of the above methods favors you, the factory reset may be going to help you out.
Follow the steps given below to get out of safe mode by factory resetting your phone.
Step 1: Go to your phone’s Settings. (Most of the phones have a Settings button on the notification panel nowadays).
Step 2: Scroll down to the bottom to find the option called Backup and Reset. Don’t hesitate to tap on the same.
Step 3: Select Factory data reset. In some other phones, it may be Delete all user data. (If you want to keep the data, don’t forget to take a backup).
Step 4: You will be shown a disclaimer. Read it and proceed to the process by tapping on Reset phone.
Step 5: It will take a while to finish the process. Select Reboot system now on the completion.
Step 6: Press the power button again to turn the device on.
The methods I shared here are all soft ones that will not give you a headache to do. Another method is there that includes wiping the cache of your entire device on the boot level. But I think, the method given above can rescue your phone.
Apart from the above methods, you can try uninstalling the newly installed apps to check whether they are the reasons that don’t allow you to boot your device up normally.
