    Default Galaxy S4: How to turn developer mode off

    I turned developer mode on the phone (settings>about phone tap build number 7 times) but was wondering how to turn it off.

    Near the top right of the screen, does it say " ON " in blue & white? You should be able to tap on that or slide it to off.

    I don't have the ON " in blue & white on top right of the screen on my Galaxy S4

    How can I turn it off?

    Go to developer settings and there should be a toggle in the top right corner

    I need help with this as well. I have searched everywhere but can't find a way to hide the developer options from settings.

    I'm on the same boat!

    I know how to turn it off with the On/Off toggle. But I like to know how to actually hide it back the way it was before I activated it!

    I would think that if you do a hard reboot you are actually bringing the phone back to factory therefore, the developer option should be hidden. This is just a guess.

    Are you also having problems with changing your lock screen security options?

    Yes, at the end that's what I did! :banghead:

    But I love to know how to undo it without doing a Factory Reset!

    No, I don't think I do.
    Are you having problems with that as well? What exactly is your problem?

    I'm trying to change the lock screen setting to a swipe instead of a pattern but all of the options are greyed out. Here's a pic

    It reads that those options were disabled by an administrator.

    Did you set up an admin password on your device?

    I don't think so. I just made a pattern password on my device. I'm going to unmount my SD card and clear the certificates and see if that fixes it.

    You might want to do a factory reset too. That might fix your problem.

    I don't really like it because after that I have to re install all my stuff back, and it isn't just a little bit! :banghead:

    But sometimes you have to do a factory reset.

    Yup, that's what I hate about a factory reset! Have to redo everything again! :banghead:

    For lock screen you should go to settings>more>application manager and then click option button and click reset app preferences

    Your screen will be unlocked
