    Kingo sends sensitive data unencrypted to their servers in China and grabs the IMEI with no apparent reason. It has been banned on XDA as of Nov 8, 2013

    Thanks, my Note 3 now rooted.
    Without root my Note 3 is useless so I use it, since Kingo is the only method that work. On theirs Facebook page they said that IMEI is use for device identification, its acceptable for me.
