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?

  • Amy

    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!

    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.

  • 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!

  • That safe mode was driving me nuts…your solution worked…thanks so much!!
