Default [Q] is rooting safe in nexus 7

Hello guys i am Monsur hasan
My parents have bought me the new nexus 7 2013
And you can call me a novice geek
So my questions is
# Is rooting safe on my new nexus 7?
#will I root it?
#will it make my device brick (heard from many sites )?
I do not care about garantie so my next question is
#will root screw up my N7?
#the most important question is will Google take strict action if I root 😒
So guys if you can answer my question please say I am very serious and tensed about root on my N7.2😓
Thanks for helping me ☺

Nexus devices are amongst the easiest and safest to root. Rooting Nexuses does not void warranty like it can on most other devices. Just find the guides in the individual forum and follow the directions. Root will not screw up your Nexus. What you can do afterwards might, so be careful and pay attention. Find some guides on rooting, and read, read, read. Go slow, and do your research.
Relax, go nutz!

Here's a good, and very recent article, regarding AV apps for Android.

http://www.androidauthority.com/best...d-apps-269696/

But honestly, the best AV is your brain. Rooting your device gives certain apps system-level access, which means a malicious app can really muck things up. Installing a Superuser app (Superuser, SuperSU) grants or denies this access on a per-app basis. AV is good and all, but your best bet to keeping your device disease-free is to simply not install apps you don't trust, and don't give them SU access unless you know what that entails. Don't go installing and using some random game-hacking app you found somewhere on the internet. Think of your device like your genitals. If you go looking on the seedy side of town for women of negotiable companionship and you don't protect yourself, there's a good chance you might catch something. And if you start side-loading apps of a questionable nature from websites you don't trust, then your device might catch a virtual STD.
Relax, go nutz!
