There's an update on the latest nonsense within OnePlus smartphones with regard to end-user personal privacy. This week OnePlus devices were discovered to have a relatively simple way to root and gain access with a simple APK. This APK was called EngineerMode, and it in itself is not all that uncommon. In fact, there's a distinct possibility that your device - regardless of brand - has an EngineerMode within it. The difference with the OnePlus app - in at least the OnePlus 3, 3T, and 5 - is that this app can relatively easily root the device - which, as we know, offers the user any access they like.
