Locale x uses DexGuard and Threatcast to secure Android mobile-app
Locale X, a popular Android app for automating device settings, was struggling with modified, pirated versions of the app. Using DexGuard and ThreatCast, Locale X was able to protect their intellectual property, prevent reverse engineering and monitor ongoing threats.
Pirates were creating extra work for Carter Jernigan, founder of two forty four a.m. and developer of Locale, by increasing server load and impacting the customer experience.
Using DexGuard to obfuscate code, Jernigan was able to protect his intellectual property, while ThreatCast enabled him to keep an eye on how users were interacting with the app.
“I let DexGuard do the optimizing for me,” said Jernigan. “It makes the engineering process a lot easier, and the app is more secure and faster, too. [...] We have a clearer sense of how to help users during support requests, like if they’re running in an environment that might be causing problems."
