Practices to enhance the security of your application


Technology security concept safety digital protection system

The security of your application is essential.

It is clear that in the first version of your application, investing in security features may not be at the top of the priority list. However, it requires the following minimum security practices:

  • Encryption of sensitive information in the database.
  • Cryptographic tokens that expire to protect user sessions.
  • Secure communication protocols (HTTPS).

Learn from your users and iterate quickly.

The first version of your application is filled with hypotheses, our best intuitions, and the best intentions. However, it is crucial to confirm or reconsider those ideas by constantly observing and learning from our users. The simplest way to learn from our users is by establishing communication channels for them to provide feedback on their experience. However, there are tools that will enable you to learn from your users efficiently and intelligently. With the help of your development team, you can implement tools that allow you to:

  • Track what your users are doing in your application, when, and for how long.
  • Build heatmaps that allow you to identify areas of the interface with the highest interaction.
  • Record screens to observe complete user sessions in the application.

Analyze this information to build valuable knowledge about the needs, obstacles, and thought processes of your users. Incorporating this knowledge into the new versions of your application is what will help make your app indispensable to your users.
