Google Plays Service Set To Block Rooted Android Devices

Rooting one Android phone has always been the best way to enjoy, utilize and unlock many features on an Android phone, but it seems Google is not happy and the have not given enough reason for this sudden decision.

Previously Netflix blocked users that are using rooted Android phones from accessing their videos which got everyone sad, now Google has joined the trail.

Well this shouldn't be a bad news anyway because those days where Android version comes with few features and requires you to root your it before getting full control of the most amazing tweaks and features Android can offer are gone, while the new version of Android phones like Android version 6.0 and 7.0 comes with those features that make us want to root our smartphone to get, preinstalled on them.

Meanwhile, the latest news which sounds bad is that Google has updated their Google Play Console, as updated during Google IO 2017, includes a Safety Net toggle. This toggle allows developers to add some features that are compatible with the app they make, and others to be kicked out.

So if your Android device is rooted, or an emulator, has an unlocked bootloader, or half a dozen other similar, related elements – it will automatically fail the integrity test. You won’t be able to access some major apps from the play store except otherwise sideloaded. You can as well use a custom ROM because you are free to download from third-party sites and sideload it into your device.

Safety Net Attestation checks for the following Device Status markers

1. Certified, genuine device that passes CTS
2. Certified device with unlocked bootloader
3. Genuine but uncertified device, such as when the manufacturer doesn’t apply for certification
4. Device with custom ROM (not rooted)
5. Emulator 6. No device (protocol emulator script)
7. Signs of system integrity compromise, such as rooting
8. Signs of other active attacks, such as API hooking
