Is Emus4U Safe?
Emus4U is 100% safe to use. The developers took a long time to develop the app, putting it through several testing stages along the way. Beta testers put the finished installer through its paces before it was publicly released and we ran our tests to make sure there were no viruses, malware or anything else that could harm your device.
If that weren’t enough, Emus4U is safe because it doesn’t need root access in the same way that Cydia did. This means it isn’t hacking through Apple’s security and isn’t opening your device up to the potential for external threat. Moreover, none of the tweaks included in Emus4U need root access either.
Finally, regular updates are issued to keep the installer safe, and the developers urge you to install these immediately.
