The Samsung USB Driver for the Galaxy On7 device is important to install if you want to connect the On7 to the computer with the USB cable and use any number of applications on the computer.

The official Samsung website states you only need the USB Driver running on your computer if you are planning on developing with the Galaxy On7 device. That’s a bit misleading.

The USB Driver is necessary if you are connecting to the Odin flashing tool and installing official software update manually, if you are rooting, installing a custom recovery or a custom kernel.
Of course, there are other reasons away from the Odin flashing tool that will be legitimate reasons as to why one would want to install the USB Driver. The most common reasons is if people are unable to transfer files from the Samsung Galaxy On7 smartphone to the computer.
