Enable Developer Options on Your Android

October 2017

All Android devices feature a Developer Options menu that houses a couple of advanced settings such as USB debugging, apps side loading, and CPU usage. The Developer Mode is disabled by default in Android versions 4.2 and later, but here's a quick tutorial on how to reenable it.

N.B. This tip applies to most, if not all, Android devices.

Enable Android's Developer Options

Tap on Apps > Settings > About device and search for an entry called Build Number.

Tap seven times on the Build Number. A message reading "You are now a developer" will be displayed.

You may now go back to the Settings menu to access the Developer Options.
