This page describes the Jailbreak/Root Protection policy.

Policy Description

The Jailbreak/Root Protection policy blocks a user from running an app when the user's device has been compromised by jailbreaking (iOS) or rooting (Android).

Jailbreaking/rooting exposes a device to security breaches. Malicious software can take advantage of this exposure, leaving any app on the device vulnerable to viruses and rogue apps.

The User Experience

When a user attempts to launch the app, Apperian checks if the device has been jailbroken/rooted. If it has been, an alert appears and the app closes. If the device has not been jailbroken/rooted, the app launches normally.
