It is not unfrequent to neglect some of the most common security aspects in Android, and rely on the default solutions already provided by Android. Do we need to do perform any special action to protect our local databases? Is our connection secure when we use the standard Retrofit/OkHttp Stack? What are the risks when we are developing our apps with the proposed Google architecture, without any extra measures?

In this session you will learn some of the frequently disregarded aspects in Android security, and how you can easily make your app better, stronger and more secure.
