Mobile User Experience Options When Untrusted TLS Hardening Cipher Suite is Detected
Learn how to customize the notification that will display to a mobile user if Appdome detects the use of unauthorized or unapproved TLS Cipher Suites in a TLS session.
App Compromise Notifications – (Cipher Suite Enforcement)
Appdome enables you to restrict the use of Cipher Suites used in TLS sessions with your app, by uploading a list of approved Cipher Suites. Appdome will enforce the use of Cipher Suites to only allow Cipher Suites contained in the list. If Appdome detects the use of unauthorized Cipher Suites, the default behavior is to drop the connection and display an App Compromise Notification to the mobile user.
This Knowledge Base article provides instructions on how to customize the App Compromise notification message when Appdome the use of unauthorized Cipher Suites.

Troubleshooting Tips – Learn the Differences between a Mobile App ‘Crashing’ and ‘Closing’
It’s important to understand the differences between apps ‘crashing’ and ‘closing’. In short, when an app crashes, it shuts down due to a bug or defect in the code. Crashing is unintentional. There may be times when a mobile app will close/shut down unexpectedly in response to a detected mobile threat, particularly if the app has been secured with certain features from Appdome’s Mobile App Security suite. In such cases, the behavior is intentional and expected. For example, for apps protected by Jailbreaking/ Rooting Prevention, when the app detects that it is running on a device that has been rooted or jailbroken, the default behavior is for the app to shut itself down in order to protect itself, as well as to protect the mobile user and data.
Read this KB to understand the most common reasons for an Appdome-secured app to shut itself down.
