We all know that Android offers us a platform to do anything, literally anything. From using our Smartphone to SMS and call our friends to using and even creating our own customised ROM. To do these things you will have to ROOT your smartphone and to ROOT your smartphone can sometimes be disadvantageous. Today we are just going to learn about some settings which are fun in a sense and some are just the geeky level - Developer options and you do not need to ROOT your smartphone.

To enable Developer options go to Settings --> About --> Software Information --> Now continuously tap the Build number for almost 10 times and there you go. Now go back to settings, scroll down to the bottom and the penultimate option is your Developer options.

Desktop backup password: If you create local backups of your Android device over USB, you can protect them with a password with the Desktop backup password option.
