Welcome to this tutorial on how to restart your Android device in safe mode. Safe mode is a useful feature that allows you to troubleshoot issues by temporarily disabling third-party apps and services. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to enter safe mode on your Android device.

Step 1: Power Off your Android Device

The first step is to power off your Android device. Press and hold the Power button until the power options menu appears on the screen.

Step 2: Access the Power Options Menu

In the power options menu, you will typically find options like Power Off, Restart, and Airplane Mode. Tap and hold the Power Off option until a confirmation prompt appears.

Step 3: Enter Safe Mode

The confirmation prompt will ask if you want to reboot your device in safe mode. Tap OK or Reboot to Safe Mode. Your device will then start rebooting into safe mode.


  • If you have a Samsung device, you may need to press and hold the Volume Down button instead of using the power options menu.

  • If you have a Google Pixel or Nexus device, you can access safe mode by pressing and holding the Power button, then tap and hold Raise volume.

  • The exact method may vary slightly depending on your device’s manufacturer and model. If none of the methods mentioned here work for your device, a quick search online should provide you with the specific instructions.

Step 4: Use Safe Mode

Once your device has successfully booted into safe mode, you will notice that the interface looks slightly different. The words “Safe mode” may be displayed in one of the corners of the screen. In this mode, only system apps and services are active, and all third-party apps are temporarily disabled.

You can now use your device in safe mode to troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing. Test if the problem persists while in safe mode. If the problem goes away, it is likely caused by a third-party app or service.

Exiting Safe Mode

To exit safe mode, simply restart your Android device as you normally would. After restarting, your device will boot up in regular mode with all apps and services enabled.

That’s it! You now know how to restart your Android device in safe mode. This feature can be incredibly helpful when diagnosing and resolving issues on your device.
