Samsung has introduced a new function called Maintenance mode; it allows users to lock their data in a vault that protects the data, including Photos, Videos, PDFs, and several other files, from formatting or losing. It creates an invisible wall that protects your data when your phone is in the hands of a technician. It allows them to access all the features of the phone, but they don’t retrieve your data.
Samsung has distributed the maintenance mode for most of the Galaxy devices with the Latest One UI 5.0 update based on the Android 13 update, but for some reason, the company hasn’t given this function to some Galaxy devices, but now Samsung is separately distributing it to the remaining devices.
According to the information, Samsung previously distributed the maintenance update to two Galaxy devices, including Galaxy A53 and Galaxy S20; now, the company has expanded the feature to the Galaxy A33 5G in India. The maintenance mode update comes under the November security patch; it can be identified by version number A336EDXU4BVKB.
