Mobile apps are of great help when it comes to money transactions, booking tickets etc.
But, have you ever wondered how safe these apps are?
There are a lot of hackers waiting for a chance to steal valuable user information such as credit card and bank details. So, it is important for apps to be secured.
You may be well aware of what hackers can do to a software or application. They steal data, create duplicate stuff and can even take hold of personal assets including money.
Not if you can secure the mobile applications with the following 8 steps:
STEP 1 – Secure the source code
It is possible that the app is exposed to vulnerabilities at the development stage.
STEP 2 – Have security measures to protect data and deny unauthorized access
Verify Application Programming Interface (API) to prevent transfer of sensitive data in wrong hands
STEP 3 – Identifications, Authentication, and Authorization
STEP 4 – Activate a good mobile encryption policy
STEP 5 – Implement a strong API security strategy
STEP 6 – Test, test and test again
STEP 7 – Alert User
Developers and testers can't always be a user's protectors. In that case,
STEP 8 – With BYOD policy, be alert and use some extra precaution
Some companies allow employees to use their own devices and this open network system will lead to more security threats.
By following these 8 steps diligently, your mobile app can be secured in general. You can also get a professional tester to ensure your app is secure. But no app can be 100% secure, and this means constant monitoring and timely testing with bug fixing is the best way to enure maximum safety of your app.
