Step 3: Now, click on it to launch the Universal ADB driver installer.
Step 4: Once you launch the installer window, it will automatically detect your smartphone or tablet since your smartphone is already connected to the computer.
Step 5: Now, you will be able to see your smartphone or tablet model number in the installer’s device list. Also, you will see the message “Driver incorrectly” under “Device status,” which indicates that you haven’t installed the ADB driver in your computer.

Once you do that, you will get a Windows Security Prompt stating that they can’t verify the driver’s publisher. Just ignore it and click on “Install this driver software anyway” to install the required ADB driver on your computer.
Step 7: After the installation is successfully finished, you will be able to see a green progress bar in the installer window along with the message “[Done] Installation Success.”
