StarForce Android Protection

Professional solution to protect Android applications against analysis, hacking, illegal distribution and use. The solution includes a DRM system, which allows to control distribution and collect activation statistics.

Developers launch new paid Android applications every day and expect to receive revenue in the long term. But they can be disappointed. In contrast to the Apple's technologies, Android allows to install .APK files not only from the official app stores such as Google Play, but also by downloading them from forums or websites. The most popular paid applications are hacked and uploaded into the net. For this reason, the developer does not get any penny from the installation of his/her products on user devices.

Protection for Android application from hacking prevents its uncontrolled spread in the Internet. APK files (exactly as EXE and DLL) can be protected against modification and decompilation.

StarForce Android Protection allows to protect a software application designed for Android OS from illegal distribution by binding it to the configuration of a user device.
