Default How to hide developer option in settings

Hi

If anyone has unhide developer options by presessing "build number" several times to enable USB debugging and other tweaking and wanting to hide it back... follow the steps below

1. Go to Settings > Apps
2. Swipe left to see ALL
3. Look for "Settings"
4. Select "Settings" (see attached image)
5. Clear data

All done. You do not see "developer options". Any changes that were made under developer options will not be reset (USB debugging will still remain enabled)

Hope it helps.

The developer options menu has an on/off toggle on the top right. Much simpler to just hit the switch and hide it that way

Procedure given by OP is correct! Developer options cannot be hidden by simply toggling on/off switch in the Developer Options. Need proof! look at the screen shots.

The last screen shot is taken after following OP's procedure.

To bring back is a piece of cake, all you have to do is go to Settings>About Phone, scroll down until you see Built Number, tap that phuker 7 times until it says "you are a phuking developer"! Then the Developer Option will magically show pop! Kids stuff but very funny...hope this help! Give me kudos!
