Microsoft has warned gamers against putting their Xbox One into developer mode, after simple instructions on how to do so were published online.

"Changing the settings in this menu is only intended for developers for Xbox One, and this alone does not turn the console into a development kit," reads a statement released by Microsoft.

"We strongly advise consumers against changing these settings as it could result in their Xbox One becoming unusable."

Microsoft explained that those who have already placed their console into the developer mode can revert by restoring factory defaults under Settings / System, select Restore Factory Defaults.
