Android devices are immensely customizable, but it can be easy to run into errors or buggy applications. The easiest way to fix errors is to put the phone in Safe Mode, which blocks all third-party apps from operating.

You can put an Android device into Safe Mode by holding down its power button, then tapping and holding on the words “Power off” and then selecting “OK” when the “Reboot to safe mode” option appears. 

Putting your Android into Safe Mode is easy — but how do you get out of Safe Mode?

The easiest way to turn off Safe Mode is to simply restart your device. You can turn off your device in Safe Mode just like you can in normal mode — just press and hold the power button until a power icon appears on the screen, and tap it.

When it turns back on, it should be in normal mode again.

The other way to exit Safe Mode is to swipe down from the top of the screen, opening a menu that will have a tab reading “Safe mode is on – Tap here to turn Safe mode off.”

Tap on said tab, and the phone will restart in its normal mode.
