Tip of the Week:
Jailbreaking a Phone Compromises Its Security Features. Never Jailbreak or Root a Phone.
Jailbreaking a phone is the act of removing or compromising a phone's pre-installed operating system so that you gain complete control over the phone's settings and the applications on it. Jailbreaking can be dangerous because it will turn off many of the security features that are on the phone. When you jailbreak your phone you will no longer be able to get security updates from the phone's manufacturer. Phones contain a tremendous amount of personal and sensitive information and must be protected at all times. To keep your data safe, you should never jailbreak or root a phone.
