Answers to some of your questions about Safe Mode

  • What is Safe Mode?

  • How do I enable and disable Safe Mode?

    Safe Mode can be enabled or disabled on the phone without additional resources. Learn how to Enable and Disable Safe Mode.

  • Why would I want to use Safe Mode?

    Safe mode is primarily used to determine what caused an issue with the phone. Safe Mode prevents any third-party applications from running when the phone powers on, which helps you determine if a downloaded application is causing the device to crash, freeze, or drain the battery more than usual. If the issue is still present when the phone is running in safe mode, it may help to uninstall any suspicious third-party applications.
