Samsung Galaxy secret codes are not some magical hacking tricks to hack your mobile instead they are just some combination of ‘digits’, ‘#’, and ‘*’ in a particular way which is developed by the manufacturer to troubleshoot and resolve technical problems in the device. Of course, I put it in the Hacking category because didn’t have any better option but believe me it’s not “hacking”. If you have seen War Games in which socially broken code monkeys were explaining to Matthew Brodrick about the secret pathways planted by developers a.k.a. Back Doors, well they are real.

Coders leave these secret passageways in the devices and programs they create so in any worse they device is not accessible using user interface or conventional way then they can enter some “key” which will enable or launch these secret and hidden features in the smartphones.

Samsung secret codes look like Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD codes) which we use daily to check our balance or data plans and other things offered by our telecom service provider. These USSD codes were primarily created for GSM phones then they came with CDMA smartphones too. Samsung coders have also hidden these secret dial codes into their devices which you can type in your dialer screen to access special features and menus.

For example *#06# can be used to check your smartphone’s IMEI number. Many of these codes have no use for a regular user but for tech savvy users these hidden codes in Galaxy are like a gold mine. Before getting to the whole list of Samsung secret codes or “hacks” we would like to put a disclaimer that you should only try these codes on your own risk and if you are aware what you are doing. Not all of these codes are generic Android phone secret codes, they are explicit to the Samsung devices. Some of these codes may work or may not work depending on your OS version, cellphone model or your telecom carrier. Without more waiting let us get to the comprehensive list of all the hidden secret codes available on your Samsung smartphone:
