All sounds great but it also opens up lot of risks. The major risk is that once your device is rooted, some malware apps can now utilize the super user privilege and hack everything from your phone.

If you have a Samsung or LG phone it is very easy, just install package disabler pro app (Samsung: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ospolice.packagedisablerpro&hl=en_GB) ( LG: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lgpd.pmanager&hl=en_GB) .
