Protection levels.

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

Locally stored data groups include Application Information, Credentials Information, Documents Information, Media Information, Storage Information.
The average DAR value is 4.70 points (7.00 points of system protection and 2.40 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.

– Application Events (‘Application 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 the app, app settings, including installed apps or installers,

– 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.,

Items’ GROUP #2 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,

Also, keep in mind, using jailbroken device means the system protection level is 0 points and you’re using out-of-date iOS 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 Analytics ‘n’ Ads Information, Application Information, Credentials Information, Documents Information, Storage Information.
The average DIT value is 4.50 points (5.00 points of system protection and 4.00 points of own protection). It is higher than a typical value (4 points, where’s 4 points of system protection and 4 points of own protection).

Items with average value 4.50 points (5 points of system protection, 4 points of own protection) means data protection levels have following definitions. Frankly talking, data available if it’s allowed only and may require user action where system protection level means – some techniques are available to developers to keep connection bypassing system settings, like proxy settings, etc., and own protection level means – bypassed by fake/stolen root certificates.
