Protection levels.

Locally stored data (Data-at-Rest, DAR).

Locally stored data groups include Credentials Information, Application Information, Analytics ‘n’ Ads Information, Application BaaS Information.
The average DAR value is 4.00 points (7.00 points of system protection and 1.00 points of own protection). It is higher than a typical value (3.5 points, where’s 7 points of system protection and 0 points of own protection).

Items’ GROUP #1 with average value 3.50 points (7 points of system protection, 0 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, extra data found that shouldn’t be accessed where system protection level means – root/jailbreak is required but not possible without wiping device data, and own protection level means – stored as is.

– Credentials (IDs) (‘Credentials Information’ Group) – Only account IDs like app or 3rd party user IDs including emails, phone number, usernames, etc. (depends on apps). This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any types of credentials including basic (IDs only), passwords, tokens, etc.,

– Application Configs (‘Application Information’ Group) – Different configuration files created by your app, perhaps app permissions. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any info related to the app, app settings, including installed apps or installers,

– Application Events (‘Analytics ‘n’ Ads Information’ Group) – App events referred to user actions ‘n’ activities were done. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any info related to analytics services like Flurry, Google Analytics, etc. or advertisements,

– Device Data (‘Analytics ‘n’ Ads Information’ Group) – Device ID, Device Name, Device OS Name and Version, and jailbroken/root status. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any info related to analytics services like Flurry, Google Analytics, etc. or advertisements,

– Credentials (Tokens) (‘Application BaaS Information’ Group) – Different tokens used to get access to your account, except for passwords but including app or 3rd party tokens, secret keys, etc. (usually give full access to your account). This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any info related to baas (backend) app storage, such as files, credentials, configs, and so on,

– Credentials (IDs) (‘Application BaaS Information’ Group) – Only account IDs like app or 3rd party user IDs including emails, phone number, usernames, etc. (depends on apps).

Items’ GROUP #2 with average value 7.50 points (7 points of system protection, 8 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, compliance but there are publicly known techniques to access the data including forensics one where system protection level means – root/jailbreak is required but not possible without wiping device data, and own protection level means – compliance encryption algorithms ‘n’ security mechanisms implementations.

– Credentials (App Passwords) (‘Credentials Information’ Group) – Apps based passwords or PINs you’re using to get access to some features of services per your account for some apps while two-factor authentication turned on (usually can’t use to your account). This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any types of credentials including basic (IDs only), passwords, tokens, etc.

Keep in mind if you’re using some Android devices such Samsung, LG or another device with an unlocked or non-locked loader that allow rooting your device without user action, the system level equals 6 points instead of 7. It means your data can be stolen without involving your actions.

Items’ GROUP #1 with average value 5.00 points (6 points of system protection, 4 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, data is not available all the time or partially accessed where system protection level means – MITM prevented or fake certificate importing prevented, but plaintext non-protected traffic is intercepted, and own protection level means – bypassed by fake/stolen root certificates.

– Application Configs (‘Log Information’ Group) – Different configuration files created by your app, perhaps app permissions. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any information stored in local or network logs,

Items’ GROUP #2 with average value 7.00 points (6 points of system protection, 8 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, compliance but there are publicly known techniques to access the data including forensics one where system protection level means – MITM prevented or fake certificate importing prevented, but plaintext non-protected traffic is intercepted, and own protection level means – own vpn or own crypto but compliance.

It means your data can be stolen with a crafted preinstalled certificate on the device or if someone makes you install a certificate. Also, if you’re using out-of-date Android < 5.0, the system level equals 2 points instead of 4. It means your data can be stolen without involving your actions.
