Hidden Secret Codes for Android Mobile Phones

Android1Even before the Android operating system came out, secret codes were available on other platforms.

Your Android device also holds a large amount of information about its hardware and system that an average user might find difficult to access. But if you know Android’s secret codes , you can factory-reset your device, find out its hidden camera information, instantly back up your precious data, and much more.  The code entry procedure is very simple and only requires you to bring up your dialer keypad and enter the appropriate number sequence.

We have collected these codes from various different sources and they are not guaranteed to work on all Android smartphones. They might also not work on all Android firmware versions. Bear in mind that some codes are carrier-specific, and won’t work on all devices. So if your phone doesn’t respond to a code, don’t dwell on it, just move on and find another one.
