How easy is it to Decompile Java or Android Apps?

All Java and Android applications and libraries are compiled to bytecode which maintains high-level information about your code including its structure and class, field, method, property and parameter names. With a free decompiler, it is very easy to recreate the source code. Obfuscation and related hardening and shielding techniques can make it much more difficult for a hacker or competitor to reverse-engineer your application.

Why use a Java Obfuscator or an Android Obfuscator on your Apps?

Apps are on our phones, inside our workplace, and powering the businesses and services we depend upon – it comes as no surprise to anyone that these apps have also become a favored target for cybercriminals, corporate competitors, and hostile nation states wanting crack licenses, steal valuable IP, trade secrets and confidential data, and attack critical infrastructure. By making your application much more difficult to reverse-engineer, you can help protect against intellectual property (trade secret) theft, bypassing licensing or other access checks, and searching for vulnerabilities and gaining access to data.
