Google Play Services Set To Block Rooted Android Devices

I think I'll call this a very bad news. What's the point of having a smartphone without it being rooted. With the latest Google update to the Google Play Console, this now includes a Safety Net toggle. This safety net toggle has been created in a way to give developers a very simple way of allowing some features to be compatible with the apps that they make. 

As was suggested in their Android Developersdocumentation“SafetyNet provides a set of services and APIs that help protect your app against security threats, including device tampering, bad URLs, potentially harmful apps, and fake users.”

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 un-certified 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

This is to say that if your Android device is rooted, has an unlocked bootloader, or has other similar related elements – it will automatically fail the integrity test. With this, you won’t be able to access some apps from playstore.

But not to worry, there are still other third party websites one can make use of to download your needed apps.
