There are many reasons for using Safe Mode, and downloaded files or apps are considered the main reason. An Android phone has to be kept in Safe Mode in case of finding any virus, so the device can be protected until the virus is removed. You may also enable Safe Mode when you find any functioning problem. Sometimes it gets enabled accidentally while changing the settings.
