I didn't bother to root my Note 4 for these reasons. While it was cool to load custom ROMS on my Note 2 but just not worth it to me anymore.

They should let the users decide if they want access to root to be blocked permanently to keep their phone secure. This question should be asked during the initial setup of the phone. Once it's set it can't be changed until you do a factory reset.

Maybe all of this isn't a bad thing. All that insecurity around the internet has me spending less and less time on my computer and more outside of my apartment...
