How to Turn On Galaxy S10e in Safe Mode

This is basically the same as the procedure above but you will find it useful if your phone can no longer boot up properly. From being powered off, you can directly start your device to boot in safe mode instead of starting in normal mode. As long as the firmware hasn’t been modified in any way, your phone will always respond when you start it up in safe mode. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Turn the device off.
  2. Press and hold the Power key past the model name screen appearing on the screen.
  3. When SAMSUNG appears on the screen, release the Power key.
  4. Immediately after releasing the Power key, press and hold the Volume down key.
  5. Continue to hold the Volume down key until the device finishes restarting.
  6. Once it’s done booting up, “Safe mode” appears in the lower-left of the home screen.

You may continue using your phone while in safe mode but you will be limited to using the pre-installed apps but if you know which app is causing the problem, you can uninstall it right from this mode.
