DATA PROTECTION ON MOBILE APPLICATIONS

Abstract
Piracy has been a huge problem to the entire IT industry. In the recent years there has been an increase in the usage of mobile based applications and many a times these applications have been illegally copied and used a lot. Apart from applications, piracy also affects video, audio producers, digital book etc. This results in huge revenue loss to the application developers and also in many cases causes the spread of viruses and backdoor programs causing hijacking of personal data. The most commonly pirated mobile apps are games and utility apps. In this paper we are proposing a new method of protecting mobile apps using steganography which will help in protecting the mobile apps against piracy.
