USB Debugging is tagged among the most useful features hidden in the Android 13 Developer Mode or Developer Options menu.

When enabled, it allows your Android device to communicate with the Android Software Development Kit (SDK) over a USB connection. As a result, your Android device is able to receive commands, files and relevant information from a computer. The computer will likewise be granted permission to pull crucial data including log files from the Android system.

And that’s how you activate the USB Debugging function on the latest Samsung Galaxy Flip 4 smartphones.

More USB Debugging Tips

With the recent system updates rolled out by Google, your Android phone will prompt you to approve a USB debugging connection whenever you plug it into a new computer. You then may opt to deny or grant access to your device through that prompt.

If you deny access, the connection is kept close and thus the computer wouldn’t be able to access your phone’s internal storage. 

You don’t really need to keep USB debugging enabled all the time unless you’re a software developer. That said, just enable it when you need to use it and disable it when you’re done.

This is recommended in order to prevent any unauthorized access by any USB-enabled devices to your phone’s system over a USB connection and thereby keeps all your critical information safe.
