Using Safe Mode in Android Oreo
Despite Android’s robust operating system, technical problems are always inevitable. These can range from simple inconveniences to major headaches. Some can be solved simply from within the OS menus or apps. Others require digging deeper into the more basic functions of the device. One way of solving more difficult issues is with Safe Mode. Safe Mode is a functionality built into the OS software. It’s primary purpose is diagnosing app-related problems. In Safe Mode, only the most basic functions of the phone are available. Most apps and services are deactivated. The stock phone and messaging apps will be there, but user-installed apps won’t.
You can use Safe Mode to test app conflicts. For example, a third-party messaging app might be causing unexpected operation. You can boot into safe mode and try messaging with the stock app. If it works in Safe Mode, then you know the app is the problem. Read on for instructions for entering and exiting safe mode in Android 8 Oreo.
You can also enter safe mode when the device is powered off
This process isn’t used to solve one single problem, but is useful in a wide range of troubleshooting situations. It’s a good preliminary step before clearing the cache or factory resetting your device. You can test a few things without actually deleting anything or changing any settings.
