How To Boot Your Android Device or Tab Into Safe Mode For Troubleshooting



There are times you install some applications on your android device and suddenly it begins to malfunction or refuse to boot up.  Safe mode is a great tool that you can use to troubleshoot these issues. Safe mode boots your phone running only the apps that came with the phone – that means no third-party apps. From safe mode, you can uninstall  any app you want to.


Unfortunately, not all phones have the same method to enter safe mode. Most Jelly Bean devices use the first method below, but some devices with older versions of Android and some newer devices (like the Galaxy S 4 and HTC One) use the alternate method further down the page.

How To Boot To Safe Mode
1. Hold down the physical power button on your device.

2. Long-press the “Power off” option that appears

3. A dialog box asking you if you want to reboot to safe mode may pop up. Tap OK

4. When the phone reboots, you should see a “Safe Mode” watermark at the bottom left of the screen, to let you know that you are in fact in safe mode.

Alternate Method (some older versions of Android and some Jelly Bean phones)
1. Turn off your phone.
2. Once your phone is off, turn it on by pressing the power button.
3. As your phone is booting, hold down both the volume up and volume down buttons (yes, both) and keep them held.
4. Once your phone has booted, you should see a “Safe Mode” watermark at the botom left of the screen, to let you know that you are in fact in safe mode.


Note: If the alternate method also doesn’t work, you can try holding down menu instead of volume up and down while booting.

Please always remember that any app you download can easily be uninstall from safe mode most especially if the app freezes, or refuse to boot up your android device.

To exit safe mode, you just restart your device as you normally would.
