In this guide, we will show you the steps to hide root from apps and games using Magisk DenyList. There are many benefits to getting administrative privileges on an open-source OS like Android. Among them, it is the ability to flash modules and tweaks that are at the top of the priority line, however, this is only one side of the coin. Routing also has its downsides, the main one being the fact that SafetyNet is dynamic.

When this happens, some apps installed on your device will know that the device is now rooted and therefore will refuse to work. The majority of these apps are related to payment and banking domains. With these lines, games like Pokemon Go will not work either (because after that you will be able to easily cheat the place). To counter this, Magisk came up with a MagiskHide that lets you hide from all these apps.

To counter this, Magisk came up with a MagiskHide that lets you hide from all these apps.

But now, the developer of Magisk has joined the Android security team and this feature (along with some others) has been removed from the app, and it is completely understandable. However, this is where open source comes in handy. Various developers took up the task and with the introduction of Zygis in Magisk, you again have the option to hide the root from apps and games using its DenyList feature. And in this guide, we’ll show you how to do it. So without further ado, let’s get started.
