I always use phones with either jailbreak or root. whenever I get an android phone, I try to root it. I know rooting and jailbreaking is not a good idea and somewhat risky too, but I think android without root is also riskier than jailbroken iPhone. You can easily bypass the lock screen of almost any latest android phone including Samsung. but I don't think there is any public method to bypass locked iPhone even if its jailbroken.
currently, I am using iPhone 8plus with chekra1n jailbreak and still, I feel it is more secure than non-rooted android.
whats your oppinion?
Jailbreaking is like using a condom given to you by a stranger. You'll never now what they did or what they inject in the software unless you wrote the program itself. And what do you gain by jailbreaking? Installing apps from an unknown source? You just exposing your self to hackers or virus at all sort.
"Mess with the Best, Die like the Rest!"
Jailbreaking is fun, however, its unsafe and you can brick your phone if not being careful.
I used to jailbreak all my old iPhones. However the older, arguably wiser me, would say that it's just not worth it. I have internet banking installed on my device and wouldn't dream of using a tool made by hackers (hacking the operating system) anywhere near my interest banking.
I’m also using iPhone with checkra1n, same as other forumer said that jailbreaking is for fun and let our phone better than before. Yes, jailbreak and root is risky, but I think don’t install any crack tweak from pirates repo then you’re safe.
I used to be a iPhone user
I would say I hate iPhone with all my guts
but jailbreaking it made it a little bit more tolerable
but as other folks already stated
never jailbreak a iPhone if you have a banking account or social apps open in your phone
though Cydia is open source and you can verify it isn´t malware
some other apps from 3rd party repositories may be
is a condom given from an stranger to you... you never know LOL
I also have a jailbroken iPhone with Cydia. I often use it to install apps not available on App Store and make tweaks in my device Jailbreaking/rooting is fun, but you should only do it when you know what are you doing. You should also uninstall any banking apps or apps that contains sensitive information before jailbreaking/rooting. If you install apps or make tweaks, you should conduct some research about the repo that you're going to download content from before downloading.
I still think that a non-jailbroken/non-rooted device is much safer than a jailbroken/rooted device because if you jailbreak/root your device, you will break any security features that it has. Your device will also have a higher potential of being hacked.
Jailbreaking is great to tweak your phone and customize ( also sideload apps), but doing that you are opening your phone to all possible malware and risks that if you are open for an adventurous future go ahead. If you want your phone to keep working fully in the best of quality and protection don't do it.
for old iphones jailbreaking was fun, because we used to activate some tweaks and install apps for free.
for newer devices, 99% of the tweaks are already there and using cracked apps is certainly opening a door to your private life, not only banking , think of your pictures, chats, your notes, your mic and your device camera's that can be turned on and off without you knowing
If you don't want to jailbreak you can also always sideload, you wouldn't get tweaks but you'd still get applications that aren't usually on the store.
No Phone Manufactured For Doing So Then It Will Always Definitely Risky But If You Are Doing Some Important Work That Requires Jail break So You Can Go For It At Your Own Risk.
Because Jailbreaking A Phone To Void It's Warranty Forever From Company.
I Will Never Suggest Such Things To Anyone Because It Has A Major Loss For Your Device Such As Breaking Of Software Anytime Without Any Warranty.
