Reboot Note 20 Into Safe Mode

The first procedure we want to show you is how to restart your Galaxy Note 20 to Safe Mode. It means that your phone must be powered on to be able to do this. Here’s how:

Press the Volume Down button and the Power key at the same time and hold them together for a few seconds. When the Power menu shows, release both keys.

Tap and hold on the Power off option until it changes to Safe mode.

Tap Safe mode to restart your Galaxy Note 20 to Safe mode.

Your device will undergo the usual reboot process but once it has finished restart, you should see the text ‘Safe mode’ at the lower-left corner of the screen.

Turning On Note 20 To Safe Mode

There are times when your device cannot boot up successfully due to some apps that may have created some conflicts in the system. As a result, your phone gets stuck on a boot screen and won’t boot up normally. The best course of action is, of course, to start the phone in Safe mode. Here’s how you do that:

Make sure your Galaxy Note 20 is powered down. Press and hold the Power key to turn it on.

Once the Note 20 logo shows, release the Power key and immediately hold the Volume Down button.

Keep holding down the Volume button until the phone finishes the boot process.

Once finished, you should see the ‘Safe mode’ text on the lower corner of the screen.

While your Galaxy Note 20 is in safe mode, you can uninstall the apps that cause the problem or do the necessary resets to make it work perfectly again.

And there you have it! Those are the two easy ways to enable Safe mode on your Samsung Galaxy Note 20.
