Rooting the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is when you unchain the internal system by installing the SuperSU application. The SuperSU app itself doesn’t do much to your operating system apart from granting the rooting privileges to the apps that request to have root access. That’s where being an experienced Android user comes into play, because if you allow root access to a hacker, he just might jump into your banking apps, messaging apps, and other scary places. It’s very easy not to allow that to happen, though. All you need to do is remember not to grant access to anything you cannot identify when the pop-up message appears on your display.
