Hidden developer options/usb debugging mode once enabled will allow you to create a connection between your android device and your computer. This allows you to copy data between your device and your pc. You can download and use the Android Studio, to build, test, & debug apps for Android.

WARNING: USB Debugging should only be enabled when you need it. Leaving it enabled all the time is kind of a security risk for that this mode grants you high-level access to your device. Say if you connect your Android phone to a USB charging port in a public location, the port could use the USB access to your phone to access data on your phone or install malware. This could happen when and only when USB debugging mode is enabled.
To disable USB Debugging and other developer options when you don’t need them, slide the switch at the top of the screen to OFF.
