Block Frida Toolkits From Scanning Mobile Apps

Frida is a dynamic code instrumentation toolkit. It lets any malicious user to inject snippets of JavaScript or their code library into native apps on Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux, iOS, Android, and QNX. As a result, hackers can inject their own scripts into black box processes, hook any function, spy on crypto APIs or trace private application code. This knowledge base article will discuss how you can block Frida toolkits from running a dynamic analysis against any Android or iOS app.

Here at Appdome, we know about the hard work and longs hours you invested in your app.  Your mobile app is the summation of all of your work, design, testing, re-testing, customer feedback and more. In fact, you have created the best app you can. So why would you let someone to hack to your app, trace its execution and basically change it as they see fit.

With Appdome, you can automatically detects and blocks Frida based toolkits from reverse-engineering and instrumenting your application’s UI and logical flow. Along with appdome JailBreak/Root prevention, it protects any mobile app from been tampered by Frida.

We hope you find this knowledge base useful and enjoy using Appdome!
