I have a question regarding the Phone/Android/Windows app to work with the website as well.
So the website stores user information and the apps can access this information and the user can add/edit the information as well from the app instead of using the website. Similar to Facebook.
So from what I know the app communicates to a web service to exchange this data. What are recommended methods to secure this data from being compromised and does this communication leave a door open for hackers to hack the database on the server?
I am sorry if I sound completely noob on this topic, but I don’t have much knowledge about apps. I only have knowledge on website, and that part I have all security measurements ensured, but now I am worried that the app will leave some vulnerabilities up and want to cover all corners.
I appreciate any help and thank you for taking the time to help me. Thanks!
