  1. Open Settings and go to the Developer Options settings (You can find it under the System settings)
    2.Under the Debugging settings, simply mark the USB Debugging option to enable the mode when USB is connected
    Note that for security reasons, Google decided to hide the Developer Options settings on the newer versions of Android. If the Developer Options is not shown on your device follow these steps:
    1. Open Settings
  2. Go to About Phone (You may need to go to General tab on some devices)
  3. In the Software Information, find Build Number
  4. Now Tap on the Build Number repeatedly to see the message that your are now a developer.
  5. Go back to Settings and there you should find Developer Options menu

I don't think we need to go to About Phone in order to Enable USB Debugging. I think Build number do not do any good to enabling USB debug. If it does,, then please explain it to me.

Why not go to USB debugging directly without tapping on Build number? I think it also works.

For the newer Android operating system like Android 4.2 or later, you can enable USB debugging by the following steps:
Step 1. Enter "Settings", then, click "About Phone".
Step 2. Tap "Build number" for 7 times until you get a note "You are under developer mode".
Step 3. Then back to "Setting", then, click "Developer options".
Step 4. The last step, tick "USB debugging". At last, press OK to enable USB debugging mode.

I haven't enabled the USB debugging, I connect to my PC with MTP mode.
It's unsecured to connect your phone to strange computer with USB debugging enable.
