How to Exit Safe Mode on Android
To turn off Safe Mode on Android, all you need to do is restart your phone. You can do that using your phone’s Power button or the notification panel. We’ll show you both methods.
The following steps have been performed on a Samsung Galaxy Android phone. On other phone models, the steps may vary slightly.
Use the Power Button to Exit Safe Mode on Android
One way to turn off Safe Mode on Android is to use your phone’s physical Power button. You use this method to restart your device, which boots your phone in normal mode.
To begin, press and hold down the Power button. In the menu that opens, choose “Restart.”
Your phone will turn off and then back on. You’re now in normal mode.
Use the Notification Panel to Exit Safe Mode on Android
If you prefer using on-screen options, you can tap an option in your phone’s notification panel to exit Safe Mode.
To do that, pull down from the top of your phone’s screen.
In the notification panel that opens, tap “Safe Mode is On” or similar wording.
You’ll see a prompt asking if you want to disable Safe Mode. Select “Turn Off.”
And that’s it. Your phone will power off and then back on, allowing you to use normal mode.
How to Fix a Safe Mode Boot Loop
Sometimes, your Android phone may continue to enter Safe Mode. There are various reasons this may happen.
One cause is that your case is accidentally pressing a button on your phone, resulting in your phone entering various modes. You can remove the case and see if that fixes the issue.
It’s also possible that a button is stuck and sending a signal to your phone’s software that you want to enter a special mode. Check out the buttons on your device. If one seems to be stuck, try cleaning your phone.
If your phone is connected to a device via USB, the device may be causing your phone to enter Safe Mode. Try unplugging all the cables from your phone.
Lastly, ensure your phone is not rooted. A rooted phone can have malicious third-party tools installed, causing the system to enter various Android modes. You can resolve that by unrooting your phone or flashing the stock firmware.
