In the past, SafetyNet was “the terror of the root”, the API responsible for detecting when a mobile has been modified and thus preventing certain apps from being opened, but last year Google announced a more advanced substitute. Now you can easily check if your mobile passes this integrity testfrom Google Play.
From Google Play you could already check if your mobile was certified and now you can also verify that Your mobile phone passes, or fails, the Google integrity testthe heir to Safety Net.
Is your mobile whole?
The Google Play Integrity API allows developers to prevent their apps or games from work on phones that have been modifiedusually for security reasons or, in the case of games, to avoid the use of cheats and hacks.
To do this, the API returns information indicating whether the app that invokes it has been modified, whether the app’s use license is valid, and if the mobile in question is “genuine”. It is at this point where it is most similar to the old SafetyNet. There is an easy way to check it yourself: from the Google Play developer options.
That is, first of all you will have to activate the development options. To do this, tap on your profile photo, display the Information panel and tap on Play Store Version several times until a notice is displayed that developer options are already active.
The options for developers are in another section of the settings. You must display the panel General and there you will see that there is a new menu Developer Options. Tap on it and you can finally check the integrity of your mobile by pressing check integrity.
The process takes a few seconds and returns us results as textwhich makes sense since it is an option focused on developers and not so much on users.
To pass the strictest test you must receive MEETS_STRONG_INTEGRITY, which means that it has passed even the most stringent integrity tests. If you don’t have Magisk, root or anything like that, this should be your result.
