Yes peeps you read the title right, do not and we repeat DO NOT use Kingo Root & Vroot to root your Android devices. Both these applications have been deemed suspicious and may steal your private data. We would take the liberty of quoting @Justin Case here :-
VRoot and KingoRoot share a lot of the same code, and a lot of the same suspecious behavior. My advice is to not run this program. Especially concerning is it’s tendency to retrieve additional binaries for your PC And phone from a remote server.The KingoRoot version also snatches your IMEI and serial number, and does what? I have no idea.
Don’t use this stuff.
The tool isn’t allowed on the forums right now, we’re still working out some issues with them. Biggest issue being sending sensitive data unencrypted to their servers in China and grabbing the IMEI with no apparent reason. When that is solved the whole issue will be reassessed. Source:-xda
Just as I thought.
Can you also explain why your company details seem to be a secret? Your website registration details are hidden behind a privacy guard, which seems a strange thing to do. Most company websites are registered to the companies address, which is also unavailable.
If you’re hoping to monetise your venture, secrecy will not help.Sent from my C6603 using Tapatalk – source:-xdaI can confirm that something unknown/suspicious is being uploaded to your PC on running the android root.exe file. The IP address (hex) corresponds to a website/location in ZH (China) (whois). My antivirus and firewall blocked it out, and the programme halted on my PC, and I couldn’t root my mom’s New Samsung galaxy trend duosSource:-xdaStrange that the user representing the company here says that they are from Canada and the website appears to be hosted in the US according to its IP address.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with developers from ChinaSource:-xda
