Protection levels.

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

Locally stored data groups include Media Information, Device Information, Travel Information.
The average DAR value is 5.50 points (7.00 points of system protection and 4.00 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 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,

– Travel Data (‘Travel Information’ Group) – Some info about accommodation, flight or ground routes. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any travel info like flight, accommodation, ground transportation, etc.

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.

– Environment (‘Device Information’ Group) – Different info about the environment of the device including apps lists, device info, OS name and versions, updates, a list of users, network details, etc. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be details about your device

Also, keep in mind, using jailbroken device means the system protection level is 0 points and you’re using out-of-date iOS 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 Travel 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.

– Travel Data (‘Travel Information’ Group) – Some info about accommodation, flight or ground routes. This data item related to mentioned group meant to be any travel info like flight, accommodation, ground transportation, etc.

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.
