2. Superuser
This app does almost the same as SuperSU. With this app you are going to get PIN protection for the fee, which is available after paying for it in the SuperSU.
This app is a little heavy compared to SuperSU, when it comes to CPU uses. The interface was not that good when the beta version was launched, but the official version is fine and runs smoothly. The developer of this app has announced that this app will always be free and no paid version will be launched ever.
•It provides multi user supports (android 4.2 onwards).
•It is a totally open source project; you can find the source code at github.
•PIN protection. It asks for PIN whenever it encounters a root access request.
•Every app can be configured separately.
•Root access prompting, logging, and notification features.
•It can handle multiple root access requests at a same time.
•Updates very frequently in the marketplace, hence you will get added support to all the new Android versions almost instantly.
•You can set the duration of request before they time out.
•If you are looking for a free app, then you cannot find any app better than this one. You will never feel that you make a compromise by not going for a paid app.
•No security voids in this app, everything is transparent.
•This app is a little bit heavy in terms of CPU uses
•The interface could be made better, but this can be of personal preference. If I don't like the interface doesn't mean you will feel the same.
