Jailbreak/Root Detection

What is a jailbroken/rooted device?
Jailbreaking or rooting refers to the process of removing all restrictions imposed on a mobile device. Jailbreaking allows root access to system files that can be manipulated to enable installation of apps, themes, and extensions that are not supported by Apple or Android or that are unavailable for download on the Apple App or Google Play store.

 

Risks associated with jailbreaking devices?
Jailbreaking devices poses many security risks to the device and the user. A jailbroken smartphone can easily be affected by malware and Trojans that can cause great damage to the system files. Hackers can easily install a tracking program on a jailbroken device to steal important files and information from a user.
