Galaxy Tab 4: Enable USB Debugging

If you’re a developer who is using the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, you should enable USB Debugging on the device. This option will allow communication between the developer tools software and the Galaxy Tab. Certain apps may also need USB Debugging enabled in order to properly communicate with the device. Just follow these steps to enable it.

  1. Ensure your device is not connected to another device via the USB cable.
  2. From the┬áHome screen, select “Apps” > “Settings“.
  3. Select “General” at the top of the screen.
  4. Scroll down on the left pane and select “About device“.
  5. Tap the “Build number” area 7 times. You should get a message that indicates developer mode is enabled.
  6. You should now have a “Developer options” selection available on the left pane. Select it.
  7. Under the “Debugging” area, check the “USB debugging” check box.


How do I remove the “Developer options” menu from settings once I’m done using it?

Once you have enabled “Deveoper options” it’s there until you factory reset the device. A factory reset is the only way to remove it.
