When you root Samsung Galaxy Grand 3 smartphones, you are getting access to the root file system on the device. Normally that is how your Android operating system is before the manufacturer and Google lock it down. Google does this for the wider audience who rely on maximum security. By locking the operating system and taking away the root access usually found in the Linux kernel, you stop the applications from being able to read each other. That makes your device much safer and better protected from malware. However, it does come at a high cost. Essentially having an Android operating system without root access is like having a Windows PC without the administrator’s account. You cannot roam free and install programs whenever you want. With root access on the Samsung Galaxy Grand 3, you can install any of the apps available on the Google Play Store without any restrictions.
