InformationDisable Developer Options.
The recommended state for this setting is: Disabled.
Enabling Developer Options allows a user to drastically alter certain very advanced settings on the device. This can severely affect the way device functions and exposes greater and developmental features to the user. This also exposes the device to respond to features such as USB debugging (when enabled) and other such features that could be exploited to get malicious access to the device sub-system. Hence, the Developer Options should be disabled.
