How to make a Flutter app with high security

When it comes to app development, the biggest concern for developers is app security. Did you know? About 57% of digital media time is spent on mobiles or tablets. With this increase in usage of smartphones and applications, app security has become a biggest concern for developers and as well as users. 75% of apps fail to clear the mobile security risks and ultimately put everything on risk.

Let’s take a look at some of the biggest app security risks and solutions for them. 

Unauthorized access to your application – Giving access to your application without verifying the users authentication is the biggest threat for security. Flutter provides various security and authentication plugins. By integrating a sign-in plugin, developers can easily add an authentication check in an app. 

Leaking of sensitive data – Nowadays mobile apps contain all kinds of sensitive data, from IDs, passwords, PIN, financial details and more. If an app lacks security then these details can be at risk. Flutter offers a secure data storage plugin named NSUserDefault for IOS and SharedPreferences for Android. 

Code injections – Code injections are one of the most common practices by hackers. They insert unauthorized code in an already existing code. This can result in major issues like data loss or total takeover of the application. Developers can use Flutter plugins which come with permissions that are already inserted into the plugin code.
