Question Mobile app security

In this sophisticated world where everything is so easy to manipulate with just one click, how does one make sure the security of the mobile app he/she is developing? What measures one should be taking today while developing an app to ensure safety and security to the users?

Default Re: Mobile app security

#1 would be to encrypt any sensitive data your app collects/generates for the user - whether it's stored on the device or sent (over SSL) and encrypted on a database that you host.

As for the actual app itself...lots of ways to do it. There's encryption guards to make it more difficult to decompile/reverse engineer your app; basic things like avoiding hardcoding passwords or keys into your source code.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Google Pixel XL
