Exposed:The Real Disadvantage Of Rooting Yr Phone by victorix(m): 9:27am On Nov 29, 2014
What am about to share many of you dont know. This is the real disadvantage of rooting your andriod phone.

From my experience of using android phones the only disadvantage of rooting i have observed is that, Rooting removes the protection and security of an andriod phone. When i say ''protection'' i dont mean, protection against virus, becus andriod phone dont contact virus.

When i say it removes the protection, i mean, yr privacy protection.
Last week i was using a friend's rooted android phone, so i Decided to do some experiment and i went into the root section of the phone. I did some things and like magic i got the password of his yahoo mail, gmail and Facebook account. Since then i knew android phones has no security.

If i hold any rooted phone, i can get the password of the person's Email, the person's conversation ( like 2go, facebook conversation) and even the person password to all social network.

If you use some banking apps like diamond bank app on a rooted phone, its a big risk to you, becus a tech expert can easliy get yr bank infomation and and stuffs like dat.

So rooting yr phone depends on what you use the phone for, if u jst wanna customise yr phone, play hd games, delete unwanted sys apps and minimise yr data usage, u can root yr phone but BeWare Of Hackers....

Being a security enthusiast, I'm inclined to believe that it is very possible. How did you do it?

Biggest lie ever. Android phones do get viruses.


When i say it removes the protection, i mean, yr privacy protection.

It also removes your manufacturer's/seller's warranty and protection against viruses.
