Once you root the ZTE Blade L3 Plus smartphone, you are granting the apps full system access so they are no longer stuck in a sandbox-type area. That’s how the apps were originally allowed to roam within the Linux kernel before Android created additional security and prevented apps having root access. The reason they did that was to give your device better security. By isolating the apps and the apps data, they could no longer read or have anything to do with each other. That means if you were to click on malware accidentally, the damage is minimal. While that sounds great, it prevents people who love Android from using the system to its fullest and that’s why we root the devices.
