Android phones provide us a set of advanced options call Developer Options that are usually locked away. Developers or skilled Android users may need to activate some of these developer options, notably the USB debugging. When you connect your Android phone to a PC for file sharing, you need to have this option enabled on the mobile. We have showed you how to turn on the Developer options and USB debugging on different Android phones before. Today, we will show you how to do it on a Tecno mobile phone.

For security purpose, you should only turn on Developer Options and necessary options below it and keep the rest options closed. If you do not need any of these Developer Options any more, head to Settings > System > Developer Options, tap on the toggle to disable it. Once Developer Options is deactivated, all options beneath it, will be terminated.

And on Tecno phones, once the Developer Options is disabled, you can’t find them any more from Settings > System > Developer Options. Instead you have to re-enable it again from Settings > Build number. Scroll up above for more details about this issue.
