How to run your Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus in Safe Mode

When there’s a problem with your Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus and you suspect that it’s caused by an application, the best thing you can do to determine if it’s a third-party app or pre-installed is to run your phone in Safe Mode. Doing this will temporarily disable all third-party applications.

It is very important that you know how to perform this procedure. There are actually a couple of methods you can choose and I will show them with you in this post. So, if you’re one of the early adopters of this device, continue reading as this guide may be able to help you one way or another.

How to Reboot Galaxy S10 Plus in Safe Mode

When you notice that your phone is not working properly while in normal mode and you need to enable safe mode so that you can troubleshoot your device properly, then you can easily do so while it’s powered on. In other words, you can switch to safe mode and back to normal mode easily. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Press and hold the Power button until the Power off window appears then release.
  2. Touch and hold Power off until the Safe mode prompt appears then release.
  3. To confirm, tap Safe mode.
  4. The process may take up to 30 seconds to complete.
  5. Upon reboot, “Safe mode” appears in the lower-left of the home screen.

Remember that third-party applications are disabled in this mode so what you can use are pre-installed apps. If your phone has some minor performance issues, you may notice that it’s responding a bit smoothly while in this mode. Do whatever you need to do to fix the problem while the device is in this mode and after that, reboot the device back into normal mode.
