3 Easy Steps to Verify Data-at-Rest Encryption in a Secured Mobile App

If you enabled Data at Rest encryption from the Appdome Mobile Security Suite, but still found unencrypted files inside your app’s sandbox, here is a list of the most common reasons for this issue:

  1. Some files cannot be encrypted.
    See Mobile TOTALData Encryption Exceptions and Comments for a list and explanation.
  2. Did you use Exclude Media Files or Exclude Web Files?
    If the file in question is a media file, then this is the expected behavior.  If you do not want a particular file to be encrypted, you can create a custom exclusion list using the Exclude the Following Files option and build your app again.
  3. Did you use Exclude the Following Files?
    If the files match the patterns, then this is the expected behavior. You can refine the exclude list of your app, and build again.
