Android Safe Mode

Android Safe ModeI am sure many of us did not know that we can boot our Android tablet (or smartphone) into “safe mode”. What is safe mode, you ask ? Safe mode is basically a state, where only the basic apps are loaded. This is very useful for troubleshooting your Android tablet.

Inside Android safe mode, you can :

  1. See if a problem you are experiencing (freezing, crash) is caused by third party apps or faulty hardware or bad OS installation.
  2. Uninstalled stubborn apps that refuses to remove itself in normal mode.
  3. Do a Factory Reset. ( Warning: make sure you back up your data first before you do this! )
