Network communication — full network access. This permission means exactly what it says. An app wants to be able to send requests and get a response through the network (Wi-Fi or your phone's data connection). Besides apps that use the internet for something obvious, apps with ads in them need this one.

There are several things that happen when Windows boots in Safe Mode that differ from a standard boot: Safe Mode does not run the autoexec.bat or config.sys files. Most device drivers are not loaded. A device driver is the software that Windows uses to interact with a piece of hardware, such as a printer or scanner.
Typically restarting an Android cell phone should get it out of the Safe Mode feature (a battery pull too as it is essentially a soft reset). If your phone is STUCK in Safe Mode though and restarting it or pulling the battery doesn't seem to help at all then it could be a hardware issue like a problematic volume key.
Stuck buttons. The most likely culprit for a phone or tablet that always boots into Safe Mode is a stuck or malfunctioning button. Remove any case or gel skin from your device. If the case is depressing the Menu key, it can cause it to load into Safe Mode.

- If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts.
