I'm not normally a paranoid guy, but this makes me awfully suspicious. Any ideas what's going on here?
There are numerous reviews on the Play store noting these things, and no explanation from Verizon. I have to wonder if they or Google were compromised by heartbleed, and if this could be something malicious.
I got the same thing. Ir requested root and I said WHOAAAAA. NO WAY
It raised a red flag with me. Even if it's not suspicious.....verizon does not need root access on my device with that app
HTC Incredible (AMOLED) rooted S-off
HTC Rezound unlocked & rooted
Unlocked MDK Rooted Galaxy S4
If it ain't broke....fiddle with it to try to make it better.
