How safe is your mobile app, in actuality? With AppSealing security, your application’s private code and information will remain well protected from hackers and snooping eyes. Let’s take a quick look at 5 critical facts about AppSealing and why you should be concerned with its protection of both your app and the users.
Obfuscate Your Code
Obfuscate your app’s code with AppSealing. By reading the source code of the app, as hackers do when decompiling it, they can grasp how it functions. In order to make the text illegible AppSealing shuffles up the code in a similar manner as gibberish. The names of variables, functions, and file paths are all changed such that the logic and flow of the app becomes unrecognizable. Obfuscating transforms the entire code into jumbled up forms of nonsense characters and makes understanding of its structure impossible. It is therefore almost impossible for hackers to gain insight on how the original code was structured thus making it very difficult for them to reverse-engineer the app and exploit
Lock Down Your Data
Any personal information stored by an app, including but not limited to login credentials, payment details, user profiles, and others, is strongly encrypted by AppSealing. Only a specific key can decrypt the vault in which the data is encrypted when AppSealing. Even if the app code is decompiled by a hacker, the user data has been encrypted and cannot be understood by the attacker. Therefore, with app sealing, vital details are kept safe from inquisitive users who might happen to come by it. It also serves as a layer of privacy protection that prevents unauthorized access or theft of data by other users.
Detect Tampering Attempts
Also, AppSealing uses a tamper detection feature which keeps watching over changes in your app after installation in the phone of a user. With this feature, it becomes possible to detect any modifications in the app’s codes as well as the insertion of any strange code hook. Therefore, the app can be programmed to auto-shutdown or to wipe-out any private data if any tampering is observed. Therefore, it makes it impossible for anyone trying to hack or reverse engineer the app to steal private data.
Thwart Reverse Engineering
Apart from disguising codes, AppSealing prevents hackers’ efforts from being successful via means such as anti-debugging, anti-emulation, anti-hook protection. Detecting debuggers and emulators that hackers use for stepping-through of their code. Such attempts to hook to try change, manipulate or spy on app’s functioning are also hampered. This greatly increases the difficulty of anyone seeking to disassemble of tampering with any of those encrypted apps.
Automate the Protection Process
The AppSealing process is based on automation and therefore fits into the apps’ build process directly rather than being a manual one. Developers do not need any particular application security skills, they write a couple lines of code and that’s all there is left prior to each release. Thus, this simplifies app hardening to avoid issues of performance slowdowns during a rollout or even new vulnerabilities in place.
AppSealing is just a simple process of incorporating strong, automatic defenses that safeguard not only your application code but also your users’ personal information from malicious intrusions and abductions. This multilayered security solution future proofs apps in light of an evolving threatscape, ensuring data stays out of the bad guys’ hands.
