Basics on How to Stop People from Hacking Your Android App – XDA Developer TV

Everyday, developers, hackers, and the NSA play a game of cat and mouse. This involves hackers trying to find their way around security measures, developers patching these holes, and the NSA spying on everyone. While we don’t have nearly enough time to talk about the implications of NSA spying on XDA Developer TV, AdamOutler does have the time to talk about what beginner developers can do to protect their applications from one class of rudimentary hacking.

In an earlier video, Adam demonstrated two easy methods of cheating an Android App. He demonstrated this using his own app Button Clicker. In this episode, Adam tackles memory hacking. Adam gives you a demonstration of how to secure your app against this type of attack.

If you wanted to protect your app against rudimentary memory hacks, check out this video. As demonstrated in the video, these simple solutions can all be defeated. However, they are good first measures for beginner developers to learn and build upon when pursuing stronger security measures.


Be sure to check out other great XDA Developer TV Videos.
