What is Safe Mode?
It is a mode that loads basic software so that you can access your device in the event that it won’t start.
Why is my device stuck in Safe Mode?
Be sure you are choosing the “Restart” option. If you still have problems, you may need to uninstall items you may have recently installed that are causing problems on the device. It is also possible that the “Volume Down” button is stuck and causing it to start in Safe Mode with every restart.
