Protecting Any Mobile App Photos with Appdome’s Private Camera
Appdome is a mobile integration platform as a service (iPaaS) that allows users to add a wide variety of features, SDKs and APIs to Android and iOS apps easily. Using a simple ‘click to add’ user interface, Appdome allows anyone to protect the mobile app photos – in seconds, no code or coding required.
Private Camera by Appdome protects any mobile app photos taken by the application. When a photo is taken by a user within the application, Appdome will intercept the “saving” request, and save the photo to the application’s private files. Those protected photos
This will ensure that all the app photos are protected privately and inaccessible to other applications. Furthermore, with Appdome’s TOTALData Encryption the app photos and sensitive data will be encrypted at runtime using industry-standard AES 256 cryptographic protocols.

- (Optional) Add your customized icon as a favicon to private photos’ thumbnails.
- Click Build My 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 to add Private Camera functionality to the mobile app in seconds.
Congratulations! When Appdome’s technology completes your mobile integration project (usually in about 30 seconds), you’ll see the notification below. You now have a mobile app built with Appdome’s “Private Camera” feature.
What to do After I Build My App?
After you successfully build an app, you need to sign the app in order to deploy it. You can also brand or customize a built app on Appdome. Read this Knowledge Base article to learn what to do after you successfully build an app. It explains both optional steps and required steps.
