How to add Copy/Paste Prevention to a mobile app

Copy/Paste Protection is a common method of protecting mobile app data from being leaked or stolen.

This KB provides step-by-step instructions on how to add Copy/Paste Prevention to any iOS/Android app – in order to prevent data leakage and protect user privacy.

Easily Add Copy/Paste Prevention to any App

Like all features in the Appdome Mobile App Security Suite, users can integrate Copy and Paste Prevention as a standalone feature or combine it with any other feature in Appdome’s Mobile Security Suite or with multiple 3rd party SDKs or APIs. You can add Copy/Paste Prevention to any mobile app from Appdome’s Mobile Data Loss Prevention sub-category.

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. Using a simple ‘click to add’ user interface, anyone can easily integrate Copy & Paste Protection to any mobile app – instantly, no code or coding required.

With Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites. For example, there are no Appdome SDK, libraries, or plug-ins to implement. The Appdome technology adds Copy & Paste Protection and relevant standards, frameworks and more to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all. Using Appdome, you can add Copy/Paste Prevention to mobile apps, which prevent users from copying sensitive data from within the app and pasting it outside the app.
