How do I turn on the Developer Options menu on my Samsung Galaxy device?

The Developer options menu lets you configure system behaviours to improve app performance. The list of developer options will depend on the version of Android that your device is running. On most Android devices the Developer options menu is hidden by default.

 

To unhide the Developer options menu:

1 Go to "Settings", then tap "About device" or "About phone".
Tap About device in Settings menu on Galaxy S10
2 Scroll down, then tap "Build number" seven times.

Depending on your device and operating system, you may need to tap "Software information", then tap "Build number" seven times.

Tap Software information in Settings menu on Galaxy S10
Tap Build number seven times on Galaxy S10
3 Enter your pattern, PIN or password to enable the Developer options menu.
4 The "Developer options" menu will now appear in your Settings menu.

Depending on your device, it may appear under Settings > General > Developer options.

Tap Developer options on Galaxy S10
5 To disable the Developer options menu, tap the switch.
Tap the switch to disable Developer options menu on Galaxy S10
