How to turn on the Developer Options menu on my Galaxy device?

Last Update date : Sep 22. 2020

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" .
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.
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.

To disable the Developer options menu, tap the switch.
