No Code Mobile Fraud Prevention
Appdome’s no code Mobile Fraud Prevention solution is aimed at protecting mobile apps and the people that use them by preventing fraudsters from weaponizing mobile apps, blocking the tools that automate mobile app fraud, and detecting on-device techniques used to carry out mobile fraud against users and apps. As part of no code Mobile Fraud Prevention, developers and mobile business can implement one, any or all of 20 new protections inside Android and iOS apps to preempt and prevent:
Mobile fraud, such as automated programs, click-bots, shopping bots, and SneakerBots used to generate fake events, hoard products, destroy mobile economies and impact brands. Additional features allow developers and mobile businesses to stop automated environments that weaponize legitimate mobile apps in credential stuffing and similar attacks, and block overlay attacks that steal from or trick users into providing valuable information and commit identity theft and account takeovers (ATOs).
Mobile malware, such as Frida, Magisk Manager and industry specific cheat engines like GameGuardian from being used to cloak malware, dynamically modify apps at runtime, manipulate app logic, bypass in-app purchases, use method hooking, use code and other injection techniques, all to gain control of user accounts, bypass mobile business logic and undermine mobile app experiences. Additional features allow developers and mobile businesses to stop malware from abusing Accessibility Services to gain privileges and access critical areas of Android and iOS apps.
Mobile piracy, such as cloning, “modding” and creating fake trojan apps to distribute malware and other malicious programs, including via unauthorized app stores.
“We wanted developers and mobile businesses to have one, no code solution to protect mobile apps from reverse engineering and attack, as well as preempt and prevent mobile app fraud before it starts,” said Tom Tovar, CEO and co-creator of Appdome. “By doing this in the client mobile app, we make the mobile economy safer and more secure for everyone.”
