Manage root access on your Android with SuperSU. It ensures your device remains secure by controlling app permissions and blocking threats. Unlock your phone's full potential securely with SuperSU.

What is SuperSU?

SuperSU is a premier root management application for Android initially developed by the famous Chainfire Android developer. It provides a security layer for app permissions on rooted devices and lets you choose apps with root access and those without, effectively blocking malicious threats.

SuperSU ensures that rooting your device doesn't compromise security by meticulously managing which applications can transcend user permissions. Rooting enables overcoming manufacturer-imposed limitations, unlocking the device's full potential. SuperSU Pro further enhances this control, ensuring your rooted device operates optimally and securely.

Note: When SuperSU was sold, many users switched to Magisk.
