Samsung released Maintenance Mode, User’s personal information will be more secure

Samsung Electronics now launched the ‘Maintenance mode’ globally for selected devices. It will provide more privacy and security to the users when they hand over their devices to anyone else. By activating this mode, the other one will not be able to access the device’s data, such as contacts, media, photos, etc.

The Maintenance Mode was successfully tested in Korea in July with Galaxy S21 series. Afterward, the company launched it in China in September. Now the company has started its global rollout for select Galaxy devices. This mode will be available on devices running on One UI 5 or later version.

Know how the ‘Maintenance mode’ works?

This mode will create a separate user account for the entrusted person and make users’ personal information more secure. While the device is in this mode, one can neither retrieve the users’ data nor the installed apps. One can download apps from the Galaxy Store and create an account on the device that will be deducted from the device when the owner exits it.

Let’s see how to use it

Users first need to go to the ‘settings.’ After that, select the option ‘Battery and device care.’ Here a ‘Maintenance mode’ tab will appear at the bottom. After clicking it, the device will ask for permission to turn it on. However, as a precautionary measure, the company encourages its users to back up their data before activating this mode to avoid any kind of data loss.
