How to disable safe mode on an Android phone or tablet, If your Android phone or tablet is stuck in safe mode, you can find steps to disable safe mode on your Android device below.
Disable safe mode on an Android phone or tablet
The safe mode function in the Android operating system is designed to protect the device from further damage caused by application incompatibility, system file corruption, outdated firmware, and other reasons.
If your Android phone or tablet starts automatically in safe mode, restart your device and see if it exits the safe mode.
If your device returns to safe mode again, you need to work hard to identify the offending or incompatible apps that caused the device to malfunction.
If the problem is caused by corrupted system files, you must use a backup (if available) or restore to factory reset and restore your Android phone or tablet for a new device.
With this understanding, let us continue to look at the different ways to disable safe mode on an Android phone or tablet.
Disable safe mode by restarting
The easiest way to disable safe mode on an Android phone or tablet is to simply restart your device and it should exit safe mode.
Press and hold the Power button on your Android Phone, until you see Power OFF/Restart options on the screen of your Android Phone.
Tap on the Power Off option and wait for your device to completely turn OFF. Wait for 2 more minutes and Restart your device by pressing the Power button.
Once the device is turned on, you should be out of Safe Mode.
Use the power and volume keys to disable safe mode
If the first method doesn’t work, you can use certain key combinations to disable safe mode on your Android phone or tablet.
- Press and Hold both Volumes Up and Power buttons at the same time.
- Continue holding the Power + Volume Up buttons, until your device is fully turned ON.
Hopefully, you should be out of Safe Mode.
Note: On some phones, you may need to try a variation of this method by pressing and holding the volume down + power button instead of pressing the volume up + power button.
Disable safe mode by removing the battery
Another way to force your Android phone or tablet out of safe mode is to remove the battery.
- Turn OFF your device by using the Power button.
