Not to worry, the process is as safe as a S.A.F.E .

1. Enable and Disabling USB Debugging
You probably already noticed that most Android-related tools on your PC will require you to enable USB Debugging for the tool to run properly. That because without it enabled, the tools cannot establish a connection between your device and your desktop. To enable USB Debugging:

Go to Settings > Developer Options.
Tick on the USB Debugging checkbox.
Select OK when you’re prompted with a message saying “Allow USB Debugging?”.

2. Enable MSAA For OpenGL Games
If you like to play games on your Android device and you’re playing it using high-end Android devices, you might want to force enable MSAA to obtain a higher quality rendering of your in game graphics. This feature is turned off in some games by default because it can drain your device’s battery rather quickly. To enable FXAA:

Go to Settings > Developer Options.
Tap on Force 4x MSAA to enable it.

3. Disable or Speed Up Animations
When you move between apps and screens in Android, you’re spending some of that time looking at animations and waiting for them to go away. You can disable these animations entirely by changing the Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale options This will make your Android device faster. If you like animations but just wish they were faster, you can speed them up.

On a fast phone or tablet, this can make switching between apps nearly instant. If you thought your Android phone was speedy before, just try disabling animations and you’ll be surprised how much faster it can seems.

Go to Settings > Developer Options.
Scroll down and look for Window animation scale, Transition animation scale, and Animator duration scale.
Adjust the scale for the animation you want. The greater the number, the slower the animation (and the longer you have to wait).

4.Fake Your GPS Location
The Allow mock locations option allows you to set fake GPS locations, tricking Android into thinking you’re at a location where you actually aren’t. Use this option along with an app like Fake GPS location and you can trick your Android device and the apps running on it into thinking you’re at locations where you actually aren’t.

How would this be useful? Well, you could fake a GPS check-in at a location without actually going there or confuse your friends on Facebook and Other Social Media by seemingly teleporting around the world.

Go to Settings > Developer Options.
Look for Allow Mock Location and tick on it to enable.
