All of you Windows OS fans out there will likely already know Safe Mode in Windows quite well. It’s the Safe Mode that we access to regain control of our Windows operating systems and run virus scans to remove viruses when we otherwise cannot open our normal OS mode. Similarly, the LG V10 also comes with a Safe Mode for us to get access to the system so we can regain control of our devices if we need it.
As most of you will know, getting root access to your file system means apps can read others data and that makes it easier for malware attacks on your device if you don’t know what you are doing. Security is one of the said main reasons why Google don’t automatically give devices root access when they come out of the box. That’s fair enough since we could imagine the amount of malware floating around on people’s devices if that were to be the case. However, those slightly more geeky people among you with an interest in the World Wide Web will likely know enough to easily negate clicking on malware and even if they do they will be savvy enough to fix it.
