Infographic: Mobile App Security

We all use mobile apps everyday, and the sheer number of apps available in app stores continues to grow. This makes them a highly attractive target to mobile app hackers looking to exploit users sensitive personal information. So how secure is your mobile app?

Users are constantly sharing this personal information with apps when they log-in, make transactions, and share their location data. Hackers certainly don’t have a shortage of mobile devices to target either, with 1 out of every 36 being compromised by a mobile security threat. Compromised devices can give these hackers access to the microphones, cameras, and GPS data.

Their strategies are sneaky, too. Mobile app hackers can reverse engineer an app to create a malicious copy of a different app. In fact, 54% of malicious mobile apps in 2018 were apps in the tools and lifestyle categories.

Check out the infographic from CleverTap below to learn how hackers use tactics like encryption failures, reverse engineering, lacking multifactor authentication, malicious code injection, and weak data storage to break into mobile apps, as well as some tips on how to defend sensitive personal information.  The best way to protect your app and your users against a potential mobile security breach is to prepare for one ahead of time, before it’s too late!
