What is Safe mode?
Safe mode is a sort of special mode that will start your phone without any third-party apps. All third-party apps are disabled when in Safe mode.
Sometimes, the cause of the issue on a smartphone is a third-party app. A single app can create many problems, like the crashing of other apps, or the entire phone, freezing and more. It is because some apps are poorly coded. So, when trying to fix something, you can boot the phone in Safe mode and see how the phone behaves. If it works fine in the safe mode, it means that one of the apps is responsible for the problem.
How to boot Moto G7 into Safe mode
Let’s see how to boot Moto G7 into Safe mode. Follow the steps below:
- Press and hold the Power key
- Next, tap and hold the Power button when it shows up on the screen
- You will see the option “Reboot to Safe mode”
- Tap Ok
- Your device will boot into Safe mode, and you will see Safe mode in the bottom left corner of the screen.
When in Safe mode, use your phone normally and see how it behaves. If the problem isn’t there any longer, it means one of the third-party apps is to blame. To exit safe mode, simply restart your phone. Then, you can uninstall apps one by one until the problem is resolved. You can start with the apps you installed recently. Or, you can perform a factory data reset on your Moto G7 and then set it up as a new device.
