Concerns concerning personal data arise when using a smartphone. Samsung, a South Korean manufacturer of mobile devices, has unveiled a solution to users’ worries.
When a phone is taken to a repair shop, a feature called Repair Mode, which was first introduced in South Korea last July, can prevent access to private data on the phone.
Samsung has now made this function available to the rest of the world after making it available in the Chinese market in September of last year. The feature is referred to as Maintenance Mode in the global release for Samsung products.
Specific variants of the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S22 Series phones running the brand-new One UI 5 have entered Maintenance Mode. The phone will restart into Normal Mode following that. The store you trust to fix your phone won’t perform a factory reset, for starters.
