Tips to Make Android Applications More Secure

by Ajay Goyal Endive Software

Android App Market has evidently grown as the biggest platform for mobile-marketing defeating the iOS market with the huge customer base it has yielded for itself. But with the promotion of your business by employing the use of android apps or by using the apps for individual use, you also earn yourself an exposure to the virtual mobile app world. Though this exposure earns you a good marketing benefit, but it also exposes you to the world of hackers and cyberpunks, where your personal information is at high risk.

So here we throw light on some tips that Android App Developers can employ in the Android apps for better security implementation:

Validation of the apps:

Android apps that provide a cloud backup of data should be validated by the Android app developers so as that the data stored in the cloud is not lost and is not prone to any security breaches. For this, an Android app development company can employ the use of security implementation technologies like ASLR and DEP.

Encryption of Information:

The popular security layers like SSl and HTTPS can be used by Android developers for better security implementation on any Android app. SSL refers to the Security Socket Layer that serves as Transport Layer Security by encrypting the transferred information between the servers and client receivers.

Data Leakage Evaluation:

One of the most common security issues that Android users witness is data leakage. Apps that have access to your smartphone data should be checked while their development for data leakage. The Android application development service provider should employ an effective Threat Modelling on these types of Android apps during the testing phase so as to avoid leakage of personal information.

Irrelevant Permissions Should Be Avoided:

An app should be developed such as to only ask permissions that are relevant to its functioning. For example, an Android app for Data Backup should not ask an access to the user’s location as it is not relevant to the app’s functionality. Android application development companies should only allow an app’s access to the relevant functional areas where the security of the user’s data is not obstructed and the app has a high genuineness.

However, some business promotion Android apps require useful data insights as a part of the customer engagement process, but, the user should be well aware of the terms before allowing the access. This is where the Android App Development service providers can implement permission gateways for the user.

So these tips should be surely employed by the Android developers to install higher security standards in Android apps and thus make the platform more adaptable.
