Having root access on the ZTE Beeline Pro is like granting your device full administration permissions. Our devices don’t come with administrator permissions out of the box because it’s the only way Android developers know how to prevent malware attacks on your device. It is still possible to download malware from the Google Play Store as soon as you buy your device, but the malware cannot go anywhere.
The reason for that is because when we don’t have root access on the OS the apps cannot read each others data. They are isolated and in their own yards so to speak. That means you can prevent any malware from getting additional access to other apps — and other apps which might have important data like your banking for example. While that sounds great for staying safe, it also prevents us from using many of the best apps out there. Most great apps require having this root access to the file system in order to work and without it we cannot install those apps.
