Samsung Galaxy J3 V / J3 (2016) - Restart in Safe Mode

Safe Mode puts your phone in a diagnostic state (returned to default settings) so you can determine if a third-party app is causing your device to freeze, reset or run slow.

Note An alternate method is available if the device is unresponsive or won't powered on

  1. With the device powered on, tap the Recent apps button.
  2. Tap the Close all icon.
  3. Press and hold the Power button (on the right edge) until 'Power off' displays on the screen then release.
  4. Select and hold Power off until the 'Reboot to Safe Mode' prompt appears then release.
  5. Tap RESTART or tap Safe Mode.
    Note This restart process may take up to 1 minute to complete.
    Note Upon restart, 'Safe mode' appears in the lower-left of the unlock / Home screen.
  6. With Safe Mode enabled, test device and app functionality.
