Hi,
Take care with pip3, I found out it might break in some way your system...

I Installed backintime app, and when went to launching it, It crashed with some python3 issues output message. (Ive been living with this issue without to realeased for so long). I made some investigations, and started to uninstall pip3' components, and when i uninstalled python-dbus (pip3 uninstall python-dbus), It fixed the problem.., so take care with that thing.

i would never give pip root privileges, that should sufficiently minimise the risks.
