Note that if your phone is stuck or you want to take your phone to a technician for repair, you’ll have to factory reset your smartphone. But, the problem with factory resetting your phone is that your data is lost and all your security details like PIN/fingerprint/etc. are wiped.

Well, with the Google Repair Mode, this won’t be the case. With the Repair Mode on Android, you will be able to reset your Android phone and your data/information will still be intact.

When you click on the Repair Mode and enter an authentication method, the Android OS will automatically lock your data/information in a separate user account on the phone. This will allow you or any technician reset your phone and lose any data. You can disable the Repair Mode feature with the same authentication mode you used to enable it.

Once activated, Repair Mode will lock your data and make it inaccessible. This feature is still under development but Google could roll out with the Android 14. It’ll be left for most phone makers to implement it in their smartphones.

Samsung already has its Maintenance mode feature that performs a similar task. However, that feature is only available for Samsung phones. The new Repair Mode will be available for all Android phones.
