When you ask something on ChatGPT, it replies with the normal mode set by OpenAI, which means limited answers. However, if you use a special prompt called the Developer prompt, ChatGPT will give you two responses to every question. One response is in normal mode, while the other is in developer mode, which appears more advanced. In this article, I will guide you through a step-by-step process to enable Developer Mode on ChatGPT using the special prompt discovered by some professional ChatGPT users.
You can do many things in developer mode that you cannot do in normal mode. Here, I am asking ChatGPT a question using a prompt with the question at the end: “How to hack a website?” Please note that I am asking this question solely to provide an example of how the normal/simple output and developer mode output answer my questions.
Here is the prompt to enable Developer Mode on ChatGPT. Remember to replace the question at the end of the line with your own question.

The answers I got from ChatGPT after asking questions related to ethical hacking (only for example purpose):
What is the Advantage of ChatGPT Developer Mode
Normally, without developer mode, you only receive a single normal answer after asking a question. Additionally, sometimes ChatGPT may refuse to answer your question if it deems it unsafe or potentially harmful to users, similar to the NSFW filter (Not Safe for Work). When you ask questions using this special developer prompt for the first time, ChatGPT splits into two different modes: normal mode and advanced developer mode. The developer mode provides more detailed information compared to the normal mode answers. Here, the normal mode refers to ChatGPT’s default behavior, while Developer Mode indicates a special behavior triggered by using the special prompt.
Once you enable Developer Mode, you can ask anything throughout the conversation without the need to paste the prompt again. ChatGPT will consistently provide you with two types of answers.
Is ChatGPT developer mode safe?
The Developer Mode in ChatGPT is considered safe as long as it is used responsibly to enhance one’s knowledge and skills. This mode provides additional insights and information when querying the AI model. However, it is crucial to ensure that the questions asked do not violate OpenAI’s policies. By adhering to these guidelines, you can effectively leverage the benefits of ChatGPT’s Developer Mode while maintaining a safe and compliant usage experience.
After following the process mentioned in this article, you can enable Developer Mode on ChatGPT. This mode allows for more advanced and detailed responses, offering a unique and enhanced conversational experience. With Developer Mode enabled, you can ask a variety of questions and receive two types of answers, expanding the capabilities and possibilities of their interactions with ChatGPT. It provides an opportunity for deeper exploration and learning, without the need to repeatedly paste the prompt. Enabling Developer Mode unlocks the potential for more advanced conversations and opens up new avenues of engagement with the AI model.
