- I use Android 5.1
- I'm running the "rooted" variant of fairphone OS, which means that:
- I can enable Root access in the developer settings, i.e. I don't need to exploit my phone.
- Fairphone promises to deliver security and bug fixes, in general updates for this android version.
- I think I understand the security implications of using root on android.
- I want to use a few apps (Titanium Backup, Droidwall and maybe XPrivacy) with root access in a "secure way", which means: I want to limit the security implications described above to the least possible.
How can I increase the security of the usage of root for some apps in android?
Note: I'm aware of threads like this one. However I ask specifically about how to secure apps which need to have root (or whom I decide to give root). I'm not talking about the general hardening of android.
