  1. What You Need to Keep in Mind to Develop a Secure Chat for Your Mobile App

  2. Which Apps are Most Likely to Be Targeted by Hackers? Attackers usually pick apps that handle sensitive data which can be used against either businesses or users that facilitate monetary transactions. Chats also increase an app’s vulnerability to cyber threats.

  3. What Do You Need to Know About Messaging App Security? • For the purposes of analyzing security risks, we’ll divide messaging apps into two groups: - • Consumer Messaging Apps • Enterprise Messaging Apps

  4. What are The Most Common Ways to Ensure The Security of Messaging Apps? Secure data storage & data transfer. • The less data is stored on the client’s side, the more secure your app is going to be. • If for some reason sensitive data have to be stored on a device, there are a number of technical solutions that can provide highly secure storage.

  5. Secure all Communication Between The Client & The Server • Ensuring the security of communication between the client and the server is particularly important for apps that have to comply with industry standards and regulatory requirements. • These requirements vary depending on the state and the industry.

  6. How Can You Ensure The Security of Communication Between The Client & The Server? • Any technology that let applications exchange data with servers can be a vulnerability. • All mobile applications we develop, we make sure to properly set up TLS/SSL, use trusted CA certificates with properly configured chains, and attach or pin those certificates to SSL.

  7. Implementing end-to-end Encryption & Reinforcing Encryption Using encryption means that developers use special algorithms to scramble data so that even if a communication is intercepted even if someone were to steal your message its contents couldn’t actually be read.

  8. What are The Most Secure Messaging Apps? • The most secure apps with chat functionality are those that use end-to-end encryption, a form of encryption that lets only two people read a message. • Using end-to-end encryption means that even if the company that developed the messaging app were to archive and store all messages on their server, they couldn’t decrypt them and read them.

  9. What are Some Typical Features for Secure Mobile Chat? • Session-level security (SLS), which is a unique key that’s generated for each session. • Using SLS, all messages exchanged within the app in previous and future sessions can only be read by the sender and the recipient. • Each message has its own key. • All data stored on a device is encrypted by a separate key that’s derived from the PIN entered by the user.
