I want to root a tiny cheap smartphone that my 6-year-old grandson uses.
He's a real techie, but he's always changing his password and then forgets to tell me so that I can store it in LastPass. So I want to install a parent protection app, where I'm the Admin, and he's a normal user (as on Windows 10). I already have Kaspersky Safe Kids on the phone, plus he has downloaded a lot of games.
There's no space for a parent protection app, and he's not allowed to use stuff like Chrome, so I want to root the phone to allow me to remove pre-installed stuff.
Here's my question: What exactly happens after rooting?
Is a password still needed for the first login after rooting - because I'm sure he's forgotten it.
Will every app have disappeared? (That would be OK.)
