Apps state the FP2 on FPOOS is "rooted"


I just came around the second app (which I wanted to install from Play Store via Aurora) which does not start on my FP2 (with FPOOS fp2_sibon-userdebug 9 21.08.1-rel.0…; just updated). Instead, they show a message saying that the device is rooted and thus not safe to run the app (bank and health insurance).

I’ve begun a discussion with the bank provider, but there’s no willingness at all to consider publishing the app on f-droid (or make it downloadable from their site).

Is this a new “feature” of Google? I’ve noticed a few apps earlier which complain about the phone not being googled, but their warning could be acknowledged without limiting the app’s functionality.

Your bank app is possibly not stating the device is rooted but saying it wouldn’t run on devices which are rooted or don’t run on a non-Google-Android for various reasons. This is a “feature” of many bank apps and for what they call “security” they refuse to run in order to limit the bank’s liability.
