Technology is today’s most valuable and essential asset. It has become so essential for the human being that their most of the work is done by the use of technology in much convenient manner. People are truly dependent on technology in this 21st century. Technology, in the various fields, is used to perform the task with less human effort in no time.

Well, in today’s world technology‘s made its journey from desk to hand, means from computers to smart phones. There are advancements of technology in today’s era. Today’s technology handles a ton of data or information which is vital for the people. Without the data or information that will lead to the breakdown in today's people life.

Ton’s of information or data flowing all over the globe, is it secure? Today, people are using smart phone where the individual store lot of information in the mobile device. The mobile application has become today’s world new revolution. There is millions of application to choose from. There are a lot of applications in google store. Let us discuss the security of android developed applications. Android has security feature built into the operating system. Now android is used by a majority of people, hence became so much popular in this era.

So, what will be the important part of an application? To secure data in the device. Well, there are many applications in the devices with a lot of information. To secure this information following practice has to be done by developer:

• When data is stored in internal storage with a private mode that data will only be accessible to the calling application. Whereas storing the data on external storage ( SD card) which can be easily accessible globally. This data can be modified by any other application. Recommendation to the developer is that do not store the executable and class files on external storage.

• When Data has to be exchanged between the applications, the content provider is used. To restrict content provider, an android app developer has to use exported flag set as false.

• Using of Sandbox, which does not allow the application to access another application’s file. Android operating system differentiates the application by using unique ID for each application. The developer should only provide those permissions which are a vital part of android users.

• Using of networking, transferring of data online is risky. The recommendation is to use HTTPs instead of HTTP because HTTPs is supported anywhere. Use of local Broadcast Manager while transmitting the data. It will protect the data & avoid the interaction from the other applications. It is a secure manager to transfer the data.

• Performing input validation, there are a lot of input validation issues from the developers. It can only be resolved by using safe language for programming by developers which can reduce the security issues.

Security of the data is the main concern for any individual. If the developer follows above practices, a high-security level can be achieved.
