Mobile Application Testing

Mobile Application Testing

When you create a mobile app, you need to be sure that it works and that it is secure from threats. This is where mobile application testing comes in.

This allows you to see which parts of your app might have functionality issues and which parts may be vulnerable. That way, you can fix those components in your apps before you release them to the general public. This gives you the chance to have a high functioning app that is also safe from intrusions.

What Is Mobile Application Testing?

Mobile Application Testing takes many forms. All of our testing conforms to the  Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) Mobile Security Project and their guidelines for app security. We will also perform a mobile application penetration test. to try to “hack” your app. If successful, we will provide you with guidelines on how you can make your app more secure.

In addition, we test all of your app’s functions in the real world to see where and when glitches will happen. Then we pass on our results and suggestions to you – so you can fix them as quickly and easily as possible.

These three types of tests – OWASP protocols, mobile application penetration, and functionality – ensure that your app is stress tested to ensure the best and most secure customer experience possible.

How Does Mobile Application Testing Work?

To put it in simple terms, Mobile Application Testing works by trying to break your app. In a controlled environment, we’ll try everything we can to stop your app from working. This is not a random event – but a controlled one, which means we can show you the results each step of the way and identify exactly where the app’s vulnerabilities lie.

This allows you to see where there are errors in your code that need to be addressed. Most importantly, it shows you what real life users are likely to do with your app – which is rarely the way you envision it.

We will then discuss with you your options to increase functionality and improve the security of your app.

At the end of this rigorous stress testing, you will be able to launch a better, more user-friendly and secure app as possible. 

How Can Mobile Application Testing Help My Company?

You don’t want to publicly release an app which has serious bugs or operational defects. Even minor issues can be exploited in unforseen ways by malicious actors. In the best case, you will just end up with bad reviews and frustrated customers. In the worst case, you will compromise the security of your customer’s data when hackers take advantage of your vulnerabilities. 

Ultimately, these cybersecurity failings could have serious reputational damage for your company.

Our experts at 100% Security Labs can put your app through its paces raise the red flags before your initial release date. That gives you control over your app – and ensures customer satisfaction and a great ranking on Google Play and the iPhone App store.
