How to Enable USB Debugging on Any Device Running On Android 5.0 Lollipop or Higher

USB Debugging Mode grants you a level of access to your device. What kind of access, you may ask. This level of access that USB Debugging Mode grants is important when you need system-level clearance, such as when coding a new app. This mode, also called Developer Mode, allows newly programmed apps to be copied via USB to the device for testing. Depending on the OS version and installed utilities, the mode must be turned on to let developers read internal logs.

But it does more than that. There are a few non-development-related benefits of this new level of access that can give you much more freedom of control over your device. For example, with the Android SDK, you gain direct access to your phone through your computer and that allows you to do things or run terminal commands with ADB. These terminal commands can help you restore a bricked phone. So this mode is a useful tool for any adventurous Android owner.

This is a simple tutorial for you to enable “USB Debugging” mode on any Android Smartphone, the method is compatible with old and new Samsung tablet/smartphones, Infinix, Gionee and Tecno smartphones that are running on Android 5.0, 5.0.1 Lollipop, Android 6.0 or 6.0.1 Marshmallow, Android 7.0, 7.1.1, 7.1.2 Nougat and the latest OS, Android 8.0 Oreo.
