How to Block Dynamic App Security Tools from Hacking Android/iOS apps

 

Learn the 3 easy steps to Block Dynamic App Security Tools from being used to hack iOS and Android apps during runtime. Prevent hackers from using advanced debugging techniques to modify mobile apps at runtime. Automatically detect and block advanced debugging techniques that leverage memory tracing.

Why Should Developers protect apps Against Dynamic App Security Tools?

Hackers often use debuggers to accomplish advanced hacking techniques during the app’s runtime. Debuggers can be used maliciously by hackers in the following ways:

  1. To read and change data while the app is running.
  2. To attach to running processes and trace and modify application memory
  3. To change the application’s logic or control flows as it executes operations
  4. To bypass existing security protections (to disable tamper protection or to bypass a Root detection library)

Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform designed to add security features, like Block Dynamic App Security Toolsto any Android and iOS apps without coding. This KB shows mobile developers, DevSec and security professionals how to use Appdome’s simple ‘click to build’ user interface to quickly and easily prevent the use of advanced debugging tools for hacking mobile apps.

Appdome Block Dynamic Hacking protection uses multiple advanced detection techniques which are spread throughout the code and operating on different API layers to detect debugging attempts performed against the protected application. Upon detecting dynamic hacking, the default action is for the app to exit/close, and in some cases appdome terminates the debugger connection.
