3. To continue, tap Software information.

Software-related information will populate the next display.

4. Look for Build Number from that list. Then, tap on it successively until you’ll see a quick label saying that “you are now 2 steps away from being a developer.”

5. If prompted, enter your password, PIN or pattern to confirm.

After confirming, you should see another quick label saying that “Developer mode has been turned on.”

That’s an indication that the Developer options menu is already unlocked on the phone.

6. To check, tap the Back key to return to the main settings menu. 

7. While on the settings menu, scroll down all the way to the bottom and you should see Developer options added in the list. To access the hidden features from this secret menu, simply tap Developer options.

Should you wish to hide this menu again, go back to the Additional settings menu and then tap Developer Options. While on the Developer Options menu, simply toggle to turn off the switch next to it. Doing so will remove Developer Options from the Additional settings menu and put it back into a hidden status.

Prevent Unnecessary Tweaks

To avoid facing unexpected system errors from invalid settings, avoid altering developer options that you are not familiar with. Note that the main reason why Developer Options are disabled by default is that they are not often needed by regular users and some options can put the device at risk, if  tweaked or used incorrectly. Most of these hidden features are needed when developing Android apps.

Hope this helps!
