How to Improve Security in Your Mobile App?

Avatar

Security is paramount for every application given that most apps collect customer/ end-user info. It is particularly important when financial information is involved. There has been an increasing urge for improved security from all quarters and given the privacy and data leak scandals that we’ve seen today, security is the main focus of every mobile app development company.

The best android application development companies follow strict guidelines and benchmarks when it comes to security and we’ve outlined five of the greatest ways to ensure the same in your mobile app with this blog.

#1: Testing

Though sounds cliched, testing is the key to minimize bugs and this is the thing that the best android application development companies focus on. It is important to keep yourself updated on the latest security-related vulnerabilities and test for the same on your mobile app and fix them if required.

Testing isn’t just about covering your bases, it is about ensuring the safety of your user’s data and hence every kind of testing from manual, regression, unit, functional to automated testing is recommended for your app. Do it before your release and keep at it even post-launch to ensure that there are no leaks.

We recommend that you incorporate testing in every phase of development and have a proper timeline for it along with development. Testing timelines aren’t planned in advance in most of the cases and this could cause problems with your launch or you might launch a buggy app which is even more worrisome.

#2: Updates

It isn’t enough to simply launch your app and be done with it. It is important to have a post-launch support/maintenance team in place. Rolling out regular updates ensure that your app is protected against the latest threats and you also get to fix the bugs that have been noticed in the meanwhile or roll out an updated version of your UI/backend as the case may be.

Have a plan for updates in place even before launch and fix a timeline for updates as well so that you don’t have constant updates every week that could irritate users while at the same time ensuring that you fix bugs and vulnerabilities every now and then.

#3: Allow for Remote Data Erasing

Planning for unforeseen circumstances such as user’s account being hacked, loss of device and so on will help your uses breathe easy. Throw in a feature that lets your users erase data from the app (personal data and sensitive info) in a remote fashion and this will endear your app to the users.

In fact, these days, users look for such features in apps before installing them. Your app having them in itself could recommend it to the user!

#4: Encryption

This is obviously to ensure the device’s safety and it is a sound protection measure. Encrypting the data transmitted from the end user’s device is a good way to ensure that the data is hacked into during transmission by hackers.

We recommend that you hire mobile app developers who are well versed in encryption and data security to ensure that your app is secure and robust against common threats and vulnerabilities. Similarly, using reliable certificates from mobile devices is another common protection measure put in place by most developers.

Make sure that you mention which devices are supported and which ones aren’t in your app’s description.

#5: Add Security at the Backend too

This is often neglected and is a major security risk! Adding security countermeasures at the backend is important to prevent malicious attacks. The simplest attack could be SQL injection or any other such command injection, manipulation of file paths, path traversal vulnerabilities, usage of null characters, read/write access and remote file inclusion.

These are just some of the possible backend attacks and this is why it is important to secure your app in the backend arena too! When you hire mobile app developers, ensure that they are conversant with all such security threats and how to prevent them before engaging them for your mobile app development.

Selfies, however, existed long before front cameras and selfie sticks. Clever peeps would turn their phones to capture photographs for themselves instead of bothering passers-by.

With the arrival of Vivo phones, almost everyone in India could afford a good quality mobile phone with the latest technology. Vivo introduced so many good phones in the Indian market with affordable prices. This won’t be at all incorrect to state that smartphones brands are fighting hard to give shoulder-to-shoulder competition to their competitors, in order to bring more budget segment phone in the market.

Talking about budget phones, after LG launched W series, Vivo is all set to launch budget phones with Z series. The smartphone market is readily waiting for the launch of the Vivo Z series, and so do we.

So, without much further ado, let’s find out what is all the fuzz about forthcoming Vivo Z1 Pro

Vivo Z1 Pro’s Design and outlook:

Talking about the phone’s design, Vivo always brings cell phones that are not only appealing feature wise but also look wise. Similarly this time too, Vivo Z1 series has hinted towards good-looking cell phone. One thing that is pretty impressive is its sleek body.

Not that it’s something new to the market but the phone’s appearance is quite stylish. With a punch-hole front camera, it makes the screen look wider with minimal side rim. We are sure that Z1 series be as stunning as it’s brothers be.

What we find interesting about the new Vivo Z1 series, is that it’s the first time with Vivo phones that the company provides a punch-hole front camera. With punch-hole selfies camera, you get a higher screen ratio than the body.

However, it comes rather late in the day, since other budget phones like Oppo already launched phones with punch-hole selfies camera.

Another good thing about the cameras in Z1 pro is it comes with a triple camera system. We get a regular, ultra wide and a depth sensor read cameras. This ensures better images while shooting landscape and portraits mode.

What Vivo claims about Z1 Pro’s battery backup?

As far as the battery is concerned we sure have a piece of good news here, too. Vivo Z1 Pro comes with a bigger battery, about 4000 mAh. This ensures great battery backup, long battery life and not to forget Vivo also provides quick battery charging.

The teaser of the Vivo Z1 proclaims that your battery will discharge but not the phones, so, I guess we have established this fact that the battery is good.

Expected Price OF Vivo Z1 Pro in the Indian market:

With many other similar segment phones available in the Indian market, we do expect the price of Vivo Z1 pro to not go beyond the budget segment. The current competition of the Vivo Z1 series would be Samsung Galaxy M40.

So, we know that the price range for Z1 is under or around 20,000 in the Indian market. This is no doubt a very good deal for a smartphone with the latest technology.
