3. Remove Debug Banner Using Flutter Commands

There are 3 modes available for Flutter App development

  • Debug,
  • Profile,
  • Release,

Debug banner appeared to show developers that the app is in debug mode. In this mode, you can develop, fix bugs and Hot reload the application.

In Profile mode, you can analyze the performance of the Flutter app. Use DevTools, very useful.

You need to make a release version of your app to deploy it in the play store. In this mode, the debug banner will be avoided.

For running release version of your app, use this command

flutter run --release
  • Use real devices rather than emulators or simulators.

Let’s make a build version of the app.

flutter build apk

Check it out now.


While taking a screenshot, or updating a widget behind the debug banner (For example, the cart icon in the e-commerce app). Developers may get irritated due to the debug banner. So, sometimes it’s better to hide. Using the MaterialApp property is one of the easiest ways to remove it. Just one line of code, that’s done. But you can also test the other ways depending on your needs. If any steps I have missed, you can comment below.
