The Mountain View company offers this section on all devices with special settings. Although it is aimed at Android software developers, both games and applications, the truth is that there are times when they are useful for all users. There are functions and features that can only be activated from here, then we will be interested in these cases that our device has the Developer Options enabled and visible.
Activate Developer Options on Android to make them visible
All you have to do is access the application Settings of your mobile device and, here, locate at the bottom the section of ‘About of the phone’. We must enter it so that the detailed information of the mobile device that we are using appears. But this is not what interests us, we will have to move to the point of Software information to access its interior.
Within Software information we will see the version of Android that we have installed, the version of the customization layer, the baseband, the kernel and other important details at a technical level. The section that matters to us is the Build number. But not the information about it, but simply press repeatedly –on seven occasions- until, automatically, the device itself informs us that the Android Developer Options have been activated.
When we have activated the Developer Options following these steps, and the terminal itself has confirmed that this has been the case, we can access them from the application Settings. Normally, they appear on the main Settings screen, at the bottom, just below the About phone section, which we previously used to activate and make Developer Options visible.
The settings that appear in this section may vary depending on the make and model of the smartphone or tablet. In addition, they can also change depending on the version of Android that the device has installed, or the customization layer, among other factors.
