Sony Xperia M2Owners of the Sony Xperia M2 smartphone can root the Android operating system that is running on it so they can have full privilege control. Having more control over our operating systems is something that naturally we always want, but it is not always practical with certain security flaws it exposes for average users. Anyone who knows how to stay away from a virus and how to delete a virus should one be on an operating system can choose to root the device instead and issue those additional privileges to their operating systems instead of using the locked operating system. However, you should be aware that rooting is not for everybody because far from everybody has an in-depth understanding of the online world, what is a threat and what is safe to do. Using an open operating system is no game, and should a virus got into your system it can potentially jump over to your banking app and other apps that you may have a sensitive formation. For anyone with enough knowledge, negating these online annoyances is as easy as not opening the front door to a gunman, while to the rest of the world it is about as difficult to understand as an advanced creative writing prose class thesis.
