For Android, rooting is the process of allowing users of smartphones, tablets and other devices running the Android mobile operating system to attain special control i.e. root access over the various Android subsystems. Since Android uses the Linux kernel, rooting an Android device provides similar access to administrative (superuser) permissions as on Linux.
Gaining the special control is good, but it comes with privacy and other risks. On a rooted phone, any app can leverage the special permissions to access and steal data. Also, some malicious app can completely destroy your phone.
