by Jellyfish Technologies Software Development Company

Today mobile applications allow us to do almost everything online. You can access almost everything, from shopping to online banking. Now the key responsibility of any hybrid mobile application development company is to secure data and applications against exploitation. Developers of such companies focus on certain practices that can help protect your app from cybercriminals.


Listed below are some of the best practices that can help secure your mobile applications against security challenges:

  1. Deploying the mobile apps on latest platforms instead of on legacy platforms or operating system can reduce the chance of security attacks. This is because the latest platforms keep updating to fix the security issues and also provide advanced data protection features.

  2. Encrypting the credentials and creating a gateway while accessing your mobile app can possibly restrict the hackers to exploit your mobile application.

  3. Test the code of the third-party libraries if used. As useful as they are, it can be harmful for your app if untested.  

  4. Using APIs that are not authorized and are badly code can provide unintended access for hackers.

  5. Hard coding the keys can make the attackers life easier. Storing keys in a secure container always provide an extra layer of security to your code.

  6. Deploying tamper detection techniques can secure the app by making the code not to function if modified by an attacker.


There are several other methods which can make your code more robust and immune from hacking. Above are the most important techniques which should not be neglected.
