The number of apps available in the Play Store is constantly increasing, and every single day we can find a new app, from the ones created purely for fun to those for productivity. You will have so much fun using the apps on your BlackBerry Priv. When choosing an app, you should definitely pay attention to the comments other users wrote in the Store, about their experiences with the specific app and if you see many negative ones, you should definitely avoid installing the application. The thing is, while many apps work great, some applications are poorly codded and can cause all kinds of problems on your device. The problems such as battery drain, slow charging, overheating, performance issues, and many others can be caused by an app. So, how can you be sure that the problem is caused by the application? You will get the answer once you boot your BlackBerry Priv into Safe Mode.
When you reboot your device to Safe Mode, all third-party apps you have installed will be disabled. Then, you need to check if the problem, for instance, overheating, occurs when in Safe Mode. If not, and if your smartphone works normally, it means that one of the applications is the reason why the issue occurs. We are going to show you how to boot your Priv into Safe Mode.

How to boot your BlackBerry Priv into Safe Mode
Here is what you need to do:
- Press and hold the Power button
- Once the “Power off” appears tap and hold it
- Tap “OK” when prompted
- The device will boot into Safe Mode
As we mentioned, when in Safe Mode, third-party apps are disabled, so you can monitor your Priv and if it works normally, it means one of the applications caused the problem.
To exit the Safe Mode, press and hold the Power Button and then tap OK.
You can uninstall a few apps on BlackBerry Priv, the ones you downloaded recently, and if that does not solve the issue you can perform a factory reset.
