Like in Windows OS, Safe Mode in Android runs only required settings and applications on the device and does not allow the running of any other downloaded apps on the device. Getting into Safe Mode on an Android phone is as easy as pressing and holding the phone’s power button for a few seconds. This option will clear the password set for the device and allows any user to access the device.
Lock Safe Mode option in SureLock prevents the user from entering Safe Mode by locking it with a password. When the user tries to enter Safe Mode, SureLock will ask for the password, without which the Safe Mode won’t be accessible. The admin can also set a password for the device as an additional security feature.
Note: This feature is available for devices running Android OS Lollipop and Marshmallow.
To enable Lock Safe Mode, follow these steps:
- Install and Launch SureLock.
- Access SureLock Admin Settings.
- In the Admin Settings screen, tap on SureLock settings.
- Navigate to Lock Safe Mode and enable this option.
- On Activate Device Administrator prompt, tap Activate.
- On the prompt, enter/select the following details:
- Safe Mode Password
- Add Device Password
- Device Password
7. Tap Change to complete. Save the changes.
Once done, you will notice that access to Safe Mode will be locked.
