I am confused about Android user rights. A lot of times you have to root your phone to get access to do things, but some programs run on a non-rooted phone in a way that would seem they have root access. Examples would be AppLockers, Antivirus programs, and Safe Browsing programs like K9. How can those applications block programs from running, scan for viruses, and have so much authority on a non-rooted phone?
