Learn the 3 Easy Steps to Protect Android Apps from Rooting & Rooting Tools. No code required. Stop KingoRoot, Magisk, KingRoot tools
Rooting is the process of unlocking the Android Operating system to gain administrative control over an Android device; it’s a form of privilege escalation.
Hackers use Rooting to attain privileged control (known as root access) over various Android subsystems. As Android uses the Linux kernel, rooting an Android device gives similar access to administrative (superuser) permissions as on Linux or any other Unix-like operating system.
Building an app with Appdome’s Root Prevention enables the app to detect if it was installed on a Rooted Android device. If a rooted device was found, the application will send out a security event (as detailed in Threat Events), if the app is not configured to handle the event, the app will exit after notifying the user.
Appdome secured apps are not susceptible to the Magisk root (and root hiding) rooting methods. Currently, among the most popular rooting methods are Magisk and MagiskHide. These include access to /sbin/su, and SELinux policy modifications. These methods are hard to detect with standard root detection protections. Appdome can detect if the device has been rooted in these methods, which renders the root hiding mechanism ineffective.
Appdome is a mobile security and development platform 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. Appdome allows anyone to easily add Enhanced Root Detection to any mobile app – instantly, no code or coding required.
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 Root Detection capabilities for Android or iOS apps. Using Appdome, mobile apps will have Enhanced Root Detection capabilities as if they were natively coded into the app.
Congratulations! You now have a mobile app fully integrated with Enhanced Root Detection.
Appdome offers additional options to protect the mobile OS and environment.
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.
After successfully building the app, the app needs to be signed in order to deploy it. Optionally, you can also brand or customize apps using Appdome. Read this KB to learn how to sign, customize, brand, and deploy apps using Appdome.
