Maintenance Mode is a way of creating a separate user account when you hand in your device to be repaired so they can operate core functions without being able to access to any of your private information. All the user needs to do is select Maintenance Mode in the ‘Battery and device care’ menu within ‘Settings’, and reboot their smartphone. As soon as it’s rebooted, all their personal information including their photos, documents and messages will be restricted.
The new privacy feature will roll out gradually to Galaxy devices starting with the Galaxy S22, allowing users to block access to their data while their devices are being serviced
