Here’s all the steps you need to make sure you get into the safe mode on the modern Samsung Galaxy Xcover 4 (but we can also try on older models).
- Turn off the phone
- When turned off, press and hold the power button (Power)
- When the Galaxy logo appears on the screen, press and hold the Volume Down button (Vol -),
Press and hold to decrease the volume until the device starts
If we did everything correctly, we will see “Safe Mode” or “Safe Mode” in the lower left corner of the screen. We can now find the problem (a malicious app, a virus to be removed) and resolve it safely.
Exit Safe Mode
To exit Safe mode, simply switch off and on again in the majority of cases (or restart if this option is available). On some Galaxy S7 models you may need to press and hold the Volume Down button (Vol -) as you did to enter Safe mode.
Could not exit temporary mode
It may happen that some app has locked Android up to restart the system in safe mode. In this case, you must remove the last installed apps in a temporary order to try to clear the problem and allow the device to perform a normal boot.
