1. What are rooted/jailbroken mobile phones or devices?
They are devices on which the iOS or Android Operating System have been modified to allow users to fix the system or install some applications that are usually restricted. Through rooting and jailbreaking, all applications can access to your personal data or files on mobile phones or devices easily.
2. Why you should not root/jailbreak your mobile phones or devices?
Rooting/jailbreaking will modify settings of the phones or devices without any tests from the developers and accordingly leading to instability of the operating system. Device safety is therefore compromised because malware can be installed by hackers and user privacy including passwords, personal data and transactional details, etc., can be breached.
Moreover, the operating system of rooted or jailbroken devices will be no longer updated as rooting/jailbreaking will block the operating system from installing the latest safety features from developers.
