In late October, Samsung announced that it will introduce a repair mode in the OneUI 5.0 system.
Now, Samsung has introduced the Repair Mode with the recent G98**XXUFGVL5 firmware update for S20 as confirmed by Galaxy Club.
Since July, the repair mode has been rolling out in Korea. Likewise, in September, this feature arrived at the top flagship models in China.
When users send their Galaxy phones for repairs, they can turn on this mode. It will block all data with personal info on the phone.
To enter this mode, one needs to be turned on in Settings > Device and Battery Care, after which the phone will restart.
Then the reboot creates a separate account on the phone for technicians to use when fixing the phone, preventing them from accessing the user’s personal data.
This update has been pushedto the European version of the Galaxy S20 model and will be put to other regions soon.
