What is USB Debugging Mode? USB Debugging Mode can be defined as a mode that can be enabled and disabled in Android after connecting the device directly to a computer with a USB cable.

The primary function of this mode is to ease and allow a connection between an Android device and a computer with Android SDK (software development kit). Android SDK is a software suite that’s designed to aid in the development of Android apps.

USB debugging in Android allows you to connect your phone with the computer and use the Android SDK with it. You can take screenshots, take a log of your phone or even test live apps as you develop them etc. 

USB debugging mode can also be used to either transfer from android to computer or from computer to android. It can also be used as a source for charging android device. Some android device like HTC allows android to connect to the computer internet using the USB debugging mode.
