How To Enable USB Debugging On Samsung Galaxy Phones

The video above shows you how turn on the USB debugging feature on Samsung Galaxy devices!


USB debugging is a feature that developers often use to transfer data between an Android device and a computer. While this is a helpful feature even for non-devs, having USB debugging on with a connection to a PC can affect the security of your device, that is why it is often off by default on new devices.

Steps To Enable USB Debugging On Samsung Galaxy Devices:

In order to enable USB debugging you will have to first turn on access to the developer settings on your phone. 

• Open the settings app on your device, then scroll down and tap ‘About Phone’ at the very bottom. 

• In the ‘about phone‘ section, tap on ‘Software information‘.

Tap ‘Build number’ four or five times until you see ‘you are now 4 steps away from being a developer, keep tapping as it counts down to enable developer options. You will have to enter the Pincode on your phone to confirm.

• Developer mode has now been enabled. Go back to the main settings page and scroll right down to the bottom, there will be a new category below ‘About Phone’ called ‘developer options‘ open that.

• Scroll down to ‘USB debugging’ and switch the toggle to on! Tap ‘ok’ on the popup. 

USB debugging has now been enabled, it’s good practice to turn it off again once you are finished using it in order to keep your device as secure as possible.
