Android Central Question

Since the SAFE MODE is on the widgets do not work ,I can not get messenger for facebook and the torch stopped working and I can not install it again . (If you touch a widget the screen says ,Widgets cant be operated in Safe mode.) How can I turn it off ?

You enable safe mode by doing an extra step or two during the reboot process. To leave it, you just reboot your phone as normal. Usually you press and hold the power button until the options pop up to shut down or reboot.

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have? On many phones, pressing and holding Vol Down during the boot process boots it into Safe Mode, so if the Vol Down button is stuck (either physically or electronically), that could cause the phone to boot into Safe Mode each time, regardless of what you do.
