There is a hidden section within Android that provides developers with different tools to help them debug apps and so much more. Regular users tend to enable these Developer options so that they can turn on USB debugging, allowing them to control the device using a computer. If you’ve ever enabled the Developer options but now want to hide then, the steps below will show you how to easily do so.
