Root access is similar to the TWRP recovery, but root works inside the phone. The term root means that applications on your phone get complete access to your phone’s system files. For example, there is an application that you are using to make changes to the UI of your phone, it will be given the permission to tweak the System UI files of your phone. It is not like the applications access the system files on their own. When your device is rooted, all applications seeking access to system files first ask the device administrator for permission. It is totally up to you whether you want to allow a specific application to access any system files or not. Android users root their devices to add new features to their phones.
