How to restart Galaxy S7 Edge to Safe Mode

Sometimes, other third party apps may cause problems with other apps. To check if one of your apps is causing a problem on your Galaxy S7 Edge, you can boot it to safe mode. When on safe mode, your phone will not allow third party apps to run. It’s a great tool to use if you suspect that a downloaded app behind the trouble you’re in. Learn how to run your S7 Edge to safe mode below.

  1. Turn off the phone.
  2. Press and hold the Power key.
  3. As soon as you can see the ‘Samsung Galaxy S7 EDGE’ on the screen, release the Power key and immediately hold the Volume Down key.
  4. Continue holding the Volume Down button until the device finishes rebooting.
  5. You may release it when you can see ‘Safe mode’ in the bottom left corner of the screen.

To identify which of your apps is causing the trouble, you should boot the phone back to safe mode and follow these steps:

  1. Boot to safe mode.

  4. After you uninstall an app, restart the phone to normal mode and check for the problem.
  5. If your device is still problematic, repeat steps 1-4.
