Protection levels.

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

Locally stored data groups include Media Information, Application Information, News Information.
The average DAR value is 4.25 points (7.00 points of system protection and 1.50 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 6.50 points (7 points of system protection, 6 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, protection and privacy issues are still possible but might involve interaction with an app code where system protection level means – root/jailbreak is required but not possible without wiping device data, and own protection level means – data is not available in backups.

– Screen Snapshots (‘Media Information’ Group) – Screenshots of your device screen running certain apps; common as an iOS app multitasking feature (app swipes) or browser tab swipes. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any data like photo, image, video, audio

Items’ GROUP #2 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.

– 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,

– News (‘News Information’ Group) – Any news non-important data types like NY magazine’s news. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be typical news data like ny magazine,

Also, keep in mind, using jailbroken device means the system protection level is 0 points and you’re using out-of-date iOS < 8.3 the system protection level is 2 points. If some data marked as shareable via iTunes, then the system protection level is 4 points.

Transferred data (Data-in-Transit, DIT).

Transferred data groups include Device Information, Application Information, News Information.
The average DIT value is 0.00 points (0.00 points of system protection and 0.00 points of own protection). It is less than a typical value (4 points, where’s 4 points of system protection and 4 points of own protection).

Items with average value 0.00 points (0 points of system protection, 0 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, data ‘as is’ and easily accessed (plaintext, no protection at all) where system protection level means – transferred (or supposed to be) ‘as is’ (plaintext) due to jailbreak/root or preinstalled non-trusted firmware, certificates, etc., and own protection level means – transferred as is, perhaps protection mode turns off or doesn’t exist or info reveal eventually.

– Device Data (‘Device 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 details about your device,

– 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,

– News (‘News Information’ Group) – Any news non-important data types like NY magazine’s news. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be typical news data like ny magazine,

– Tracked Data ‘n’ Favorites (‘News Information’ Group) – Any favorites data or tracked data marked as desirable by users and for users (Means, user is on FB messenger, Viber, bank client or favourite hotel, room type, flight route, airline). This data item related to mentioned group meant to be typical news data like ny magazine

Keep in mind if you’re using out-of-date iOS < 9.0, the system level equals 2 points instead of 4. It means your data can be stolen without involving your actions.
