If you wonder what Xiaomi repair mode is, today we are going to explain how to use it. We will not deny that Xiaomi is one of the most popular phone brands worldwide. Not only because it manufactures spectacular mobile devices with an unbeatable value for money, but also because MIUI, its customization layer, is the best option for many users.
What is Xiaomi repair mode?
It is called repair mode Mode but despite its name, it does not serve to fix the mobile device if something goes wrong. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that this function is really interesting and it is very useful.
Let’s say we have to send our Xiaomi device to the official store for repair. In most cases when a technician starts to tinker with a device, it always ends up the same, formatted or with factory settings reset. Then, you must reinstall everything from scratch unless you have a backup.
Well, the repair mode solves this problem. Repair mode allows you to create a new user profile without any personal data (no email accounts, installed applications, stored files…) This way, the technician will never be able to access your personal data.
How to use Xiaomi repair mode?
To be able to use this feature, access the settings and select the mode.
As we all know, we store a multitude of private data on our mobile phones. However, there are times when there is no choice but to temporarily leave our device when we send it for repair.
The repair mode will allow us to be completely calm when a third party makes use of our device. The technician will not be able to see your personal data, photos, contacts, email accounts, or installed applications.
As we have said before, leaving this mode is very simple since it will only ask us for a password.
Best of all, switching between the two modes takes just a few seconds, so we will not lose any time when switching between normal mode and repair mode.
Repair mode will be available to everyone with a device updated to MIUI 12.5.
