Google now makes sure that your device is free of rootkits and other types of malware before you can boot your device. This step was taken after the launch of KitKat but all it does is inform you of the problems that could potentially plague your phone but now with Android Nougat which rigidly enforces the boot check, Google has assured us that a stricter action than a mere warning will be taken.

If your boot process is corrupt Android will either stop working or go into limited use mode with permission. The feature will make its appearance when devices preinstalled with Nougat start shipping.
This will come in handy to most people as it will ensure that your device remains safe from virus attacks after restart. However it could come with its own set of problems according to Google which include error related corruption as a result of verifications which can restrict access to data blocks. This can also make it harder to customize your phone with custom firmware.
According to Google all devices that come with a locked bootloader will end up using this to check on modifications which will only become harder when Nougat makes an appearance.
