Default [Q] "You're already a developer prompt?"

Just have a quick question, I was messing around with the "About Phone" section in the settings. I swiped all the way down to the build number section that says "KRT16M" and I accidentally tapped that section a few times. Apparently I'm a developer now?
My question is a bit paranoid but something I want to be assured about.

Would this effect my phone in any way? I'm certainly not a developer, but according to the phone, I've signed up to be one or something. Just wanted to know to be sure that I haven't done anything stupid in any form of way.

lol, youre seriously asking about this? well, if you pressed it enough times, it unlocks a new setting in the phones main settings, developer options. if you asked google, you would have found an answer in seconds.

You haven't done anything harmful to your phone, just unlocked extra options that developers tend to play with. If anything, this will be useful when you want to do anything to your device.
