How to detect device rooted or jailbroken in react native

Hello Friends,

Welcome To Infinitbility!

First, I try react-native-isDeviceRooted ( ) but due to manual installation I got errors and started to research on an alternative solution and I got jail-monkey ( ) and it’s like a charm and below tutorial, I will explain how I do it…

Note ❗ Since emulators are usually rooted, you might want to bypass these checks during development. Unless you’re keen on constant false alarms ⏰


jail-monkey package provide functionality to check or detect device is rooted or jailbroken and also is easy installation compare to react-native-isDeviceRooted, our emulators are usually rooted then we have to stop checking is rooted or jailbroken when we developing and testing in emulators.


jail-monkey installation are very simple…

1npm i jail-monkey --save
  • Install jail-monkey using yarn
1yarn add jail-monkey
  • Link jail-monkey package ( Not required as of React Native 0.60.0 )
1react-native link jail-monkey # Not required as of React Native 0.60.0

jail-monkey isJailBroken example

jail-monkey provide isJailBroken functionality to check android device is rooted or iOS device is jailbroken and it’s work both platform with same codebase checl below example

1import JailMonkey from 'jail-monkey'
3if (JailMonkey.isJailBroken()) {
4 // Alternative behaviour for jail-broken/rooted devices.


react-native, rooted, jailbroken, ios, android, secured, Detect
