How Do I Turn on Fire TV’s Developer Options?

Developer Options on Fire TV

You may already be aware of this, but Fire OS is an Android clone built on the AOSP platform. As a result, your phone and the operating system for Amazon’s Fire TV devices are very similar.


The experience when using it on TVs is improved by a layer of customization, but at its core, it’s still our beloved Android.

The two operating systems have many features in common, acting as a fork in the road. The ability to install Android apps on your Fire TV is perhaps the most well-known of these, but it’s facilitated by a different, less well-known feature: the Developer Preferences

Do you want to know how to activate this unlocked feature? The next step is to demonstrate how to activate developer options on Amazon Fire TV.

The Fire OS developer menu was hidden by an update, but we’ll show you how to enable it again.

Enable Developer Options on Fire TV

For Fire TV devices, the developer menu was initially turned on by default in Fire OS. However, this feature has stopped working since a June 2022 update (they hid it). Knowing what can happen if this menu is enabled, this choice was likely made for security reasons.

Even so, accessing it is still very simple; just follow these instructions to see your Fire TV’s developer options:

  • Open your Fire TV’s settings menu.
  • Access “My Fire TV” by clicking here.
  • Visit “About” now.
  • Tap your device’s name seven times.
  • The developer mode will start working once you press the final key (Fire OS will notify you).

You can now access the developer options by returning to the “My Fire TV” menu. Enable Developer Options on Fire TV

What is included in this special menu?

There isn’t much to do in this hidden menu, unlike Android. However, if you enjoy fiddling with your Fire TV, you will be able to activate two crucial features. The first is using ADB for debugging, and the second is installing programs from untrusted sources.

However, if you’re a new Fire TV user and want to make the most of your device, we suggest reading some of the articles we’ve written for you about the best free Fire TV apps, how to delete apps to free up space, and how to watch IPTV channels on your device.
