What is Safe Mode?
It is possible to encounter some critical errors in a computer, especially, while using Microsoft Windows Operating Systems. Some external tools made by haters of Windows OS may harm your computer. During such situations, Windows OS provides a wonderful option called Safe Mode for running the system in a mode in which any software programs installed in your computer cannot affect the performance of the computer. Using this mode, it becomes easier to rectify the mistakes that cause some critical problems in your computer. Moreover, Windows OS provides some extra options in this mode to operate Safe Mode in various scenarios.
Misuse of safe mode
Generally Safe Mode is used by a user to troubleshoot some problems that are occurred while operating the system in normal mode. Moreover, this mode allows the user to change something that cannot be changed in normal mode. Through Safe Mode option, an user of the system enters Windows without providing any password to the computer using log in as Administrator option. This makes sure that a strange person can also enter the computer without knowing the password of the user accounts of Windows OS installed in that system. So it is necessary to set a Windows Safe Mode password.
As Safe Mode allows a person to enter Windows as an administrator, it is recommended to set a password for the Administrator to keep the data in the system safe from strangers. For this purpose just log on to Windows normally or through Safe Mode. After this go to Start button and click on 'Control Panel' option and then select 'USER ACCOUNTS' icon in Control Panel folder. After this, select the Administrator account and set a password. Now, the system cannot be accessed through Safe Mode without knowing the Administrator password. This is the Windows Safe Mode password which protects the data from being stolen by strangers.
