What is Hardware Level Protection?
Filtered Android devices can be protected from all bypasses and removal with another layer on top of the Removal Prevention, called Hardware Level Protection.
Hardware Level Protection gives Netspark better control and abilities in protecting filtered devices from bypasses such as removing the filter from Safe Mode, force stopping the app, or disabling the filter through an Extreme Power Saving Mode.
Hardware Level Protection can also be very helpful in extreme issues like not being able to remove or reinstall the filter from a device due to some sort of bug caused by the Android Operating System, Sub Systems such as MIUI or Oxygen OS, or even by the filter itself.
