DO NOT USE OR CONDONE VROOT UNLESS YOU GIVE THE FOLLOWING WARNING.
Vroot sends your imei number to an IP address in China during it's attempt to root your phone.
You have been warned

Yet.... or that you know of.....

However, the official policy of XDA forum is not to suggest using VRoot unless you provide the warning to users as well.
So please bear that in mind, so users are aware of the risks themselves

hmmm, using team viewer or others remote things to root is fine, people take the risk themselves if they allow someone remote access to their PC

However, Vroot takes personal and confidential information from your phone and sends it to china, if you are happy with this, fine do it, but please advise others of the risk, especially as there are easier, quicker and safer ways to root.

Also, there is no need to get personal.

The warning is needed due to Vroot having closed source and it does collect personal information.

All of the Software on XDA is use at your own risk.

If you are not sure what a software does then you may want to think twice before you recommend someone use it.
