Learn 3 easy steps to Protect iOS Apps against Jailbreaking.
Jailbreaking is the process of unlocking the operating system on an Apple device to gain full administrative control over the OS, the device, and anything running on the device. Jailbreaking enables the highest privilege level possible. Jailbreaking is accomplished by removing iOS restrictions, modifying system kernels to allow read and write access to the file system. This form of administrative privilege escalation permits custom software installation and device behavior modification.
Building an app with Appdome’s Jailbreak Prevention enables the app to detect if it’s running on a dangerous Jailbroken or compromised device. If a jailbroken device was found, the application will send out a security event (Threat Event), if the app is not configured for Threat Events, the app will close itself after notifying the user.
Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there is no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. Likewise, there is no requirement to implement advanced techniques or keep up with the latest known jailbreaks and how to detect them for developing Enhanced Jailbreak capabilities for Android or iOS apps. Using Appdome, mobile apps will have Enhanced Jailbreak and Root Detection capabilities as if they were natively coded into the app.

The technology behind Build My App has two major elements – (1) a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of code sets needed for mobile integrations, and (2) an adaptive code generation engine that can recognize the development environment, frameworks and methods in each app and match the app to the relevant code-sets needed. For example, Fusing allows the integration of EMM SDKs and Root/Jailbreak detection to the mobile app in seconds. Work that ordinarily a developer would need to do.
Congratulations! You now have a mobile app fully integrated with Enhanced Jailbreak and Root Detection.
After you have added Jailbreak Prevention to any Mobile App on Appdome, there are a few additional steps needed to complete your Appdome project and get your app into the hands of users. Read this KB on Completing Appdome Projects.
In order to use Appdome’s no code implementation of Jailbreak and Root Detection you’ll need:
