Hello there! In this post I will explain how to enable developer options in android. It is relatively simple. However, it wasn't until the last year that I learned how to do it. Before I get started, you might ask "Why would I want to do this?" A big advantage to enabling Developer Options is the option to enable ADB (Android Debugging-necessary to root your phone). Besides ADB, there are just a whole lot of other cool/geeky options (for your inner geek ) that you may not know about (such as monitoring CPU usage/processes and visualized touch input). It's not necessary at all, but just a neat option built into Android. That being said, let's get started!

Step one: Open up settings and scroll down to the "About phone option" and select it.

Step two: Once in the "About Phone" section, scroll all the way down to the "Build Number" option.

Step three: Tap the "Build Number" option eight times (it will count down once you get to four) until it says "You are now a developer!"

Step four: You can find your new options right above the "About Phone" tab in settings.

Step five: Congratulations! You've done it! Enjoy messing around with the new options!
