Will your company allow employees to use rooted Android devices?
SilverHawk 1 year ago
Does it make a difference to you if someone's BYOD has been rooted? Probably 50% of the people I know that use an Android have rooted it. I'm sure that the percentage of the general public that roots their device is much lower than that, but still, there are plenty of rooted Androids out there. The majority of the time on older devices, most of my friends rooted their phones to get rid of bloatware, but as internal memory size has increased that is less compelling of a reason. As concern about security vulnerabilities of mobile devices rises, are more businesses starting to consider root access when developing their BYOD policies? Would you allow a rooted Android smartphone at your company?
