How to Get Your Android Phone Out of Safe Mode

One of my friends suddenly found that her phone had put itself in “safe mode”. She had no idea how she had done it and no idea how to get it out of that mode. After looking around on the internet, I found a solution that worked for her.

  1. Turn the phone off.
  2. Turn it back on and hold the “up” volume button.

Pretty easy, but it seemed to work for her.

Hope this helps!

    Thank you soon much this worked. I dropped my phone in the water. Safe mode came on and I tried many things to get it to turn off. My apps wouldn’t work till it was off. Powered down and then when it went to repower itself, as it does in safe mode I held the ,”up” button on the volume then released to let it finish. It powred back on and reset my apps.THANK YOU.

    What is the safe mode ? why does the phone go in that?

  17. Amy says:

    I tried this several times with my son’s phone with no luck. Then thought what if I pulled the battery and then tried it? So I took the battery out, then powered on and held the volume up button and wah-lah! Safe mode gone. Thank you!

  18. Kristi says:

    Thank you! My phone goes into safe mode all the time. Usually if I turn it off, take out the battery for a minute and start over it’ll work, but it didn’t work this time. Doing the “volume up” trick did.

  19. Margaret says:

    I’ve tried everything including 2+ hours on the phone with tracfone and I can’t get it to go away! They even sent me a new one and guess what it’s in safe mode!

    Hi there, thanks so much for your post and some of the helpful comments here. I read all the comments., 90% of them are positive, a lot of thankful participants here. For those who can’t do what I did because time does not permit, I run 4 blogs myself – inspirational and natural health. This post has the best participation and results I have seen on the Net ever!

    My son and I updated to a Nokia Lumnia 640. Everything is running smoothly like clockwork on his and I have had so many interruptions on mine, even when I am not using it – quite annoying!

    I have been interrupted by pesky windows Update notitifications I have managed to switch off and my phone still kept switching itself off then on again………right in the middle of a text several times I was making (then it was lost) and you guessed it, during some calls as well.

    I was ready to go to the store to get them to adjust the settings when I thought I would make a quick google search and found this post. I’m tired now and want to call it a night but I intend to try the advice I’ve found here. I shall give you a summary of the most helpful tips I read here that are reported to work with or without this solution – mostly with.

    PS I run 6 websites these days – because I enjoy it obviously – but I do like a mobile just to be a phone (for text and calls) Why did they have to complicate things with frequent Microsoft updates and Flight Mode? That’s what they call Safe Mode on the Nokia Mobiles. Fortunately, I noticed the aeroplane emblem for a split second when the phone switched on again, a few times. That gave me a hint what to look for.

    Thank you – I was absolutely stumped. No idea why Galaxy Core Prime suddenly went into Telstra safe mode – thanks to your lateral thinking it’s now back to normal! Panic over!
