How to get out of Android safe mode
To get out of safe mode, all you need to do is restart your phone. You can do this using your phone’s power button or notification panel. We will show you both methods.
Note: The following steps have been performed on a Samsung Android phone. On other phone models, the steps may vary slightly.
Use the power button to get out of Android safe mode
One way to get out of safe mode is to use the physical power button on your phone. You use this method to reboot your device, which boots your phone in normal mode.
To start, press and hold the Power button. In the menu that opens, choose “Restart”.
Your phone will turn off and then turn back on. You are now in normal mode.
Use the notification panel to get out of Android safe mode
If you prefer to use on-screen options, you can touch an option on your phone’s notification panel to exit safe mode.
To do that, swipe down from the top of your phone screen.
In the notification panel that opens, tap “Safe mode on” or a similar phrase.
You will see a message asking if you want to disable safe mode. Select “Power off”.
And that is. Your phone will turn off and then turn back on, allowing you to use normal mode.

Sometimes your phone may continue to enter safe mode. There are several reasons why this can happen.
One of the causes is that your case is accidentally pressing a button on your phone, causing your phone to enter various modes. You can remove the case and see if that fixes the problem.
It’s also possible that a button is stuck, sending a signal to your phone’s software that you want to enter a special mode. Take a look at the buttons on your device. If one seems to be stuck, try cleaning your phone.
If your phone is connected to a device via USB, the device may be causing your phone to enter safe mode. Try unplugging all cables from your phone.
Lastly, make sure your phone is not rooted. A rooted phone may have malicious third-party tools installed, causing the system to enter various Android modes. You can solve that by unrooting your phone or flashing stock firmware.
