How to Access Developer Options and Enable USB Debugging on Galaxy S10

USB debugging is a mode that allows your Galaxy S10, or any Android device for that matter, communicate with computers for the purpose of development. It is under Developer options and by default, the mode is hidden away that’s why if you need to have access to the former before you can enable USB Debugging on your phone. 

For Samsung “USB debugging is intended for development purposes only. Use it to copy data between your computer and your device, install apps on your device without notification and read log data.”

Needless to say, if it’s enabled, there’s a potential risk for others to be able to access your information if the phone gets connected to a computer. That’s why it’s important that after doing what you need to do with it, you have to disable it back for security purposes.
