Android Security Vulnerabilities Every Developer Should Know
Open SourceThe very thing that makes your life as a developer easy, also makes it challenging from security perspective. Since the entire source code is easily available, people with malicious intent will look out for opportunities to create a security breach.
FragmentationAs an Android developer this is one of the most challenging things you would have to deal with. The same OS is being used for devices below $100 and ones above the $800-$1000 mark. With hundreds of manufacturers giving their own touches to the operating system, new age viruses and malwares are finding it easy to exploit the loopholes that you won’t find with Stock Android.
Slow UpgradesAndroid users are infamous for being slow in adopting new patches and upgrades or moving onto the new version of the operating system. Sticking to an outdated version of the OS makes them more vulnerable to data and identity thefts. As a developer you need to take this in a stride while developing apps for your clients.
Third Party App StoresThough this may not be a security problem directly related to Android, it does deserve a mention. The fact is these stores have more malware ridden apps than Google Play store. Though not all third-party stores are bad, you need to carefully find ones where you would make your app available. Your app can not only suffer from security threats in such stores but can also earn bad reputation among your target audience if they have nasty experience with these stores. If you are planning to develop an app to promote your business, it is important that your app overcomes these vulnerabilities. You need the services of a professional android development company, and we at Semaphore Software let you make deep penetration among your target audience.
