Android Hidden Codes: These are the secret codes of your device


Do you know the USSD codes? What about “Android secret codes”? These are characters to type on your phone to access information, do tests or access hidden menus. Let’s see what it is and how to use it.

Let’s start by explaining what is USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data). It is a protocol that allows information to be sent across the network. It is for example possible to recharge your phone in call credit in certain countries. Thanks to this protocol, we buy a card, we scratch and we enter the code.

In the same way, there are some codes that we can use to access information, do tests or access hidden menus in our Android phones. Some codes will refuse to work on certain models or brands of smartphones, but you can try them carefully. You could lose data or damage your device. Do the manipulations only if you are absolutely sure of yourself …

Useful Android USSD codes

To enter these codes just pull up the default dialer app and use your chubby fingers to press the correct buttons.

Developer Options

Want even more hidden menus? Did you know that Android offers well-hidden Developer Options? Go to Settings, then to About phone (or System> About phone ), find the Build (or version) number and tap it 7 times. You will see a message stating that Developer Options are available. You will find them in System or directly in the Settings menu. Here you can activate Debug Mode, manage Bluetooth, configure the animation scales, the notch, the background apps, and a lot of other things…

    Do the codes have any side effects?

    Unintended consequences? It would depend what the intention was to begin with. The codes work and do what they say, unless you enter the wrong one. These are powerful commands in some cases, with great power comes great responsibility…

    Hi Abdullah, greetings.
    On a pc, one can run programs sometimes within a virtual box or emulator, is it possible such a concept exists for an android phone – to try things out within a safe environment? I don’t wish to damage or brick my phone. You see, I’m not a developer, but a noob – questions like this enter my mind and I don’t know what is possible or impossible – I like to think there is at least possibilities! Thank you.

    You probably dont want to mess with EPST ssettings if you dont know what you’re doing.

    I like this site, it hard to find tech sites that aren’t a glorified Apple circlejerk.
