Mobile apps dominate this era, and in the last few years, mobile apps have taken over the world with changing consumer habits. Mobile apps and Smartphones have become an integral part of everyday life. Many companies have turned to mobile apps due to the increase in the number of smartphones and tablets worldwide.
Research shows that 90 percent of the time spent on mobile devices is spent on apps, more than mobile browsers. But we must keep in mind that “great opportunities come with great challenges.” The most challenging part of the Mobile app is its security and vulnerability.
The five important ways that can help you keep your app secure
Most inexperienced developers do not understand the value of data storage security in a mobile app. Data Storage should accommodate all these validations, such as:
SSL pinning plays a significant role in building highly secure mobile apps. Data is used by many people across countless insecure wireless networks daily while using their mobile devices. Once ATS is enabled, the next step to increase security is to enable SSL Pinning. More security element is to be added to the mobile app. It uses certiﬁcate pinning to avoid man-in-the-middle attacks. When the public networks are used to communicate, it is vital to send and receive information securely.
User Authentication and authorization are the new normal for all apps, be it B2C or B2B. Which is a must-have feature for the Mobile app as it gives more power to the owner of the app.
Rooted devices are most vulnerable to attacks. The execution of an app on a rooted device should be avoided at all times. Mobile App should detect jailbroken phones by using libraries like Jail Monkey.
But it is also vital to understand that if you are targeting a larger audience, mainly B2C, you may lose business since these days, most mobile phones are rooted.
