Every Android user is an explorer. They love to explore every nook and cranny of their beloved devices. This is why we share a fascination with the Android secret codes and hidden secret menus.

Android is the most popular smartphone OS ever. Developers create various kind of backdoor within the applications and operating systems. Through these backdoors any user who has sufficient knowledge can get into the much deeper system as compare to other users. As we all know Android is an open source operating system based on Linux Kernel and developed by Google. Android operating system is most widely used in the world. Android developers also create many backdoor through which you can enter into the system and you can change settings. It is not meant to use these backdoor for malicious intent because developers block some modes and these backdoor are the way or allow the users to enter into the system and let them become familiar to the system.

Manufacturers don’t want certain options available to the normal users, and frankly, that’s a good idea. But if you want more control and power over your Android, read on and try some of these great Android secret codes.

Smartphone manufacturers tend to keep the technical stuff away from the common users. They don’t want to confuse or overburden normal people with a bucket load of options.

In smartphones these backdoor are called “secret codes”.

A point to be noted here is that some of the codes are a bit extreme. Some of them wipe your entire smartphone and factory reset it, so be cautious while inputting them. Read the description and then go on a code entering spree.

So here we collect some hidden android secret codes May be some of them not work on specific device but you can try it.
