SafetyNet's hardware attestation will make hiding root in Magisk really hard

xda-developers.com/safetynet-h

Google is making it nearly impossible to hide root access on an Android device from their Google Apps API. Won't effect me since I've been using GrapheneOS with a locked bootloader and I don't use proprietary apps, but I bet a lot of android power users follow me. I also recognize that lots of people get work phones with apps they are coerced into installing by their employers that require these checks to be bypassed if you have root. This underlines the importance of having control over our devices and organizing against our employers control over our personal devices.

@thufie yeah I cannot use my bank app on my new phone because it's rooted.
I trust it so much more than my phone with unpatched android 5 where it still works, but heck "ohno, your rooted phone is a security risk" m(
