It’s quite easy to turn off the developer options. If do it, their functions won’t continue to work until you turn them on back and set them. Also the settings you’ve made won’t save. (This particularly is true for MIUI devices, but it may differ in other operating systems).

Once you’ve turned them off, the developer section will also disappear when you leave the settings.
