Why Notify Users When Copy/Paste Is Not Allowed?

Whenever a mobile user attempts to copy sensitive data from a mobile application, and paste it outside of the app, Appdome’s technology blocks the content from being pasted from the clipboard.  Instead of displaying the copied content, Appdome will display a custom Notification to the user.

We hope you find it useful and enjoy using Appdome!
