Demerits of Rooting Android devise


With great power comes great responsibility

Now, say all these advantages have convinced you to root your Android device. But you can do it at your own expense, risking your own mobile security. see why:

 1. You can turn your smartphone into a brick. Well, not literally, but if you goof up the rooting process, meaning the code modifications, your phone software can get so damaged that your phone will basically be as useless as a brick.

 2. Your phone warranty turns void. It’s legal to root your phone; however, if you do it, your device gets straight out of warranty. Say you root your phone and some time after that, you experience a phone malfunction – hardware or software related. Because of the Android rooting, the warranty is no longer valid, and the manufacturer will not cover the damages.


3. Malware can easily breach your mobile security. 
Gaining root access also entails circumventing the security restrictions put in place by the Android operating system. Which means worms, viruses, spyware and Trojans can infect the rooted Android software if it’s not protected by effective mobile antivirus for Android.
Security advice

 If you still want to root your device, make sure you research the process very well, as it differs depending on the smartphone type and brand. It’s better you ask for expert advice on dedicated forums, or better yet, ask a tech savvy person to root it for you. All these in order to ensure you don’t turn your device into a brick.

 Install proper antivirus protection for your Android phone, even before rooting the device, to fend off malware infections.

 And the good news: If for some reason you change your mind about it, you can always un-root it. In this case too, it’s better you ask for expert help.
