7 Tips to Secure Your Rooted Android Device

To Root or not to Root an Android is a never ending debate. Surely, rooting opens a window of opportunities for Android but then it also makes it vulnerable to security threats and voids the phone warranty, which are two major red flags.

In fact, phone security is one of the major concerns that most of the general public would prefer a non-rooted phone. However, if you have found the prospects of rooting more promising, then here are a couple of tips to secure your rooted Android device.

1. Install a Trusted Root Management App

Aforesaid, rooting lets you customize your Android to your heart’s content. Not only customization, it also lets you effectively manage the phone’s internal storage and run special apps. And these apps often need an administrator access to function.

2. Oversee Android App Permissions

So, now that you have installed a gatekeeper app, it’s natural that the rooted apps will ask for admin access or superuser access. And when these special apps ask for permissions, we often grant them without a second’s thought.

3. Get Apps from Secure Sources

The Google Play Store is often the source of most of the Android apps. Though it’s not the best, it’s one of the safest places from where you can download your apps. This is because Google regularly checks apps for viruses, malware or for anything suspicious.
