How to enable Developer Mode Option on Android Device

The Settings app on Android includes a screen called Developer options that lets you configure system behaviors that help you profile and debug your app performance.

For example, you can enable debugging over USB, capture a bug report, enable visual feedback for taps, flash window surfaces when they update, use the GPU for 2D graphics rendering, and more.

The Developer Options menu in Android is a hidden menu with a variety of advanced options. These options are intended for developers, but many of them will be interesting to geeks also.

Below are the steps to enable developer options:

Step 1: Open the Settings app.

Step 2: (Only on Android 8.0 or higher) Select System.

Step 3: Scroll to the bottom and select About phone.

Step 4: Scroll to the bottom and tap Build number 7 times.

Step 5: Return to the previous screen to find Developer options near the bottom.
