Enabling safe mode on a Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is quick and easy to do.
Safe mode is a way to launch Android on a smartphone or tablet without any third-party apps, usually running as soon as the operating system loads.
Usually, when you power on your Android device, a series of apps like a clock or calendar widget can automatically load on your home screen.
Safe mode prevents this from happening, which is excellent if your Android smartphone or tablet crashes frequently or runs incredibly slow. However, it is a troubleshooting tool rather than an actual remedy for the problem. When you launch the Android smartphone or tablet in safe mode, third-party apps may not run at all – even after the device boots up.
Below is a step-by-step how to enable Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Safe Mode with a video at the bottom of the page if needed.
