How to Use and Customize App Compromise Notifications

Last updated March 13, 2024 by Appdome

Appdome detects various security threats during the application runtime, both when the app is launched and while it is running. When Appdome identifies a threat, it responds based on the policy provided by the customer. The policy can specify that when a specific event is detected, the app will trigger an app compromise notification to the user.

The content of the notification is specified below the specific threat in the App Compromise Notification field. A default message will be displayed if the customer does not provide the notification content. However, we advise customers to provide the notification content by specifying an easy-to-follow default remediation path for the mobile app end user. You can customize this message as required to achieve brand-specific support, workflow, or other messaging. For example, you can use the tag {app_display_name} which will be replaced with the app display name when the notification is displayed.

The event code and the app fuse token are added to the message in the following format:

[message content] REF: [event code]:[fuse id]

App Compromise Notification field



The App Compromise Notification field is displayed differently in iOS and Android, as shown below.

  • A toast message on Android devices
    Toast On Android App compromise notification
  • A popup notification on IOS devices
    Pop-up On iOS App compromise notification

Short Message Option

On Android devices with OS version Android 12 and above, the content length of Toast messages is limited. Appdome allows you to select an alternative message with a shorter description under the Short Compromised Notice field.

Disclaimer: The number of characters shown in the short compromise notification messages depends on factors such as the device, Android OS version, and device settings, which are all controlled by the Android OS and unrelated to Appdome. To ensure optimal readability across different devices and screen sizes, we advise keeping the text of the short message notifications as concise as possible.


The event code and the app fuse token are added to the message in the following format:

[message content] REF: [event code]:[fuse id]

While Appdome does its best to display the full compromise notification message, the short message is used as a fallback.

On iOS devices, there is no such limitation, and the full compromise notification message will be used.
