  • What is USB Debugging Mode?
    USB Debugging Mode is one thing that you cannot skip to know if you are an Android user. The primary function of this mode is to facilitate a connection between an Android device and a computer with Android SDK (Software Development Kit). So it can be enabled in Android after connecting the device directly to a computer via USB.

    USB Debugging Mode, in some versions of Android, is also called Developer Mode. It grants you a level of access to your device. This level of access that USB Debugging Mode grants is important when you need system-level clearance, such as when coding a new app, copying via USB to the device for testing, with it you can get much more freedom of control over you device.
