LG K8 V - 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.

NoteAn alternate method is available if the device is unresponsive or won't power on.

  1. Press and hold the Power button (located on the back) until Phone options is displayed then release.
  2. Select and hold Power off until "Restart in safe mode" is displayed.
  3. From the Reboot in safe mode prompt, tap TURN ON.
    Note This restart process may take up to one minute to complete.
    Note Upon restart, Safe mode appears in the lower left of the unlock/home screen.
  4. With Safe Mode enabled, test device and app functionality.
