45 Hidden Android Secret Codes That You Should Know

Your lovely Android smartphone hides lots of information about its hardware and system configurations that you might find difficult to access. Smartphone manufacturers and Android developers intentionally keep that information away from the common users. But if you know secret codes, you can easily access that hidden information. These secret codes would get you in hidden menus within Android.

Android secret codes give you a more command over your smartphone. You can factory reset your smartphone, backup your data, test your Wireless LAN and much more with these codes.

These codes are universal and should work on Android devices, no matter the manufacturer. Some codes are carrier-specific, so they’re not all guaranteed to work on all devices. You should use these codes with cautions. Some of them can make your phone lose data.

To enter these codes just bring up your phone dialer keypad and enter the appropriate code.
