What Is Android Application Pentesting?
Android penetration testing is a process of identifying security risks and vulnerabilities in Android mobile applications. The penetration testing experts who perform tests to find threats use different automated tools and methods. This comprehensive approach looks for loopholes in an Android application, finds practical solutions for it, and ensures it works fine in the Android environment. The mobile application pen-testers aim to discover the security threats and vulnerabilities in the apps and take necessary action to protect them before cybercriminals exploit them.
At Qualysec, we have a team of experts who work closely with the Android application team to discuss potential threats and weaknesses and provide possible and practical recommendations for the efficiency of the application.
Why do you need android application penetration testing?
Today, every individual is dependent on the mobile application. There are millions of Android applications present in the Google PlayStore that keep on updating as per the user’s requirement. However, that doesn’t mean the application is completely secure and protected from threats. These threats and application vulnerability is required to be found and addressed on time. That’s when Android Penetration testing comes into play.
At Qualysec, we provide Android Application Penetration Testing services that help you secure your Android applications and safeguard your data from cyber threats.
Protect sensitive data
Through Android application penetration testing, the protection of sensitive data is possible. The Android application pen testers will work on an application to find vulnerabilities like data leakage, misconfiguration, inadequate privacy controls, and others and perform necessary changes to protect sensitive application data from cybercriminals that might exploit it for their benefit once they get access to your Android application.
Meet Compliance Requirements
Along with assisting your organisation in protecting the sensitive data of your Android application, penetration testing will also help meet compliance requirements and industry standards like HIPAA, PCI-DSS, ISO 27001, GDPR, and others. Most Android application developers perform penetration tests intending to get compliance.
Avoid Financial Setbacks
Android applications hold sensitive data of both user and the organisation and require protection. Identifying unauthorised access to the application is essential because one data leakage can lead to significant financial losses, causing the application to lose the user’s trust. Penetration testing can prevent this from happening and create a flawless user-end experience.
Assessing Impacts Of Attacks
Attackers can exploit vulnerabilities in both server-site script and client-site script in an attempt to access the sensitive data to perform unauthorised activities like data leakage and cause financial damage that can hamper app user trust and Android application developers. Proactively detecting threats can help track potential attackers’ impacts and protect from other insecure and defective Android applications.
Let us understand your context better and provide you with the best solutions.
What Types Of Compliance Can Be Achieved by Using Our Services?
- PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
- GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)
- HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)

What Are Common Android Application Vulnerabilities?
When it comes to Android application vulnerabilities, ensuring their security is crucial. Android app penetration testing helps identify and address potential weaknesses, ensuring the integrity and protection of your app.
Android application Penetration Testing - What We Provide
At Qualysec, our expert team performs penetration tests for Android applications. We use a comprehensive approach, employing various tools and methodologies to test Android applications. We provide the following services to ensure the complete security of your Android application.
DEEP PENETRATION TESTING
Android applications carry sensitive data of the users like their names, login information, videos, photos, chats, and more that gets collected and stored within the applications. Qualysec’s mobile penetration testing takes responsibility for securing those sensitive or confidential data from getting exposed and exploited by unauthorized devices or servers. We conduct a deep penetration test to confirm the data and perform business logic testing and reverse engineering to cut down every possibility of cybercrimes.
Our methodologies and testing framework are based on the OWASP. We perform 3000+ test cases that will reveal every underlying threat within your Android application code. We also perform reverse engineering to reduce the possibility of being hacked through the source code of Android applications. The pen testing experts can detect application vulnerabilities and weaknesses in security. QualySec scans and diagnose Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure (CVEs) in Android application penetration testing to ensure total protection. We also provide in-call remediation assistance from our security experts.
Qualysec understands your worry about Android application security risks and weaknesses. That’s why we release daily descriptive and compelling reports for your Android application developer team, as they will stay updated with the process and progress of the penetration test. In addition, Qualysec will perform a detailed analysis of the authentication mechanism of your mobile application. Assuring satisfaction to your Android application user in the long run.
DETAILED PENTEST REPORT
After performing the Android application penetration test, we check to ensure zero false positives: the vulnerability and security threats are genuine and require immediate improvement. Qualysec provides a comprehensive report demonstrating the entire penetration test. The pentest report includes all other significant explanations with relevant screenshots, details of vulnerabilities and threats, their location, videos, reference links, and more so that your Android application developer team gains information and understands which measures are best for the betterment of the application.
Performing a penetration test on the Android application is not enough. That’s why we assist in the onboarding process. We check if the recommendation and reference links provided by our team were helpful and were applied successfully by your developer team, and if not, we are open to assisting in that as well. After that, we perform a retest to check no vulnerability is present to hamper the Android application.
LETTER OF ATTESTATION
At last, Qualysec congratulates you by providing a letter of attestation and security certificates as a conclusion and configuration that after thoroughly testing your Android applications, we exploited every possible vulnerability. Now your Android application is secured and has successfully met the appropriate industry standards and compliance requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions
Android application penetration testing is a process of finding application-related security threats and vulnerabilities present in the Android application. The penetration tester or ethical hacker aims to assess the application’s unauthorized access to learn the weaknesses of the application. The pen-testing can help in securing the overall security posture of the Android application by simulating real-world-attacks and fixing found vulnerabilities that the cyber attackers might use to exploit.
In general, Android application penetration testing is performed by someone with immense knowledge about Android applications and is aware of the security threats and latest vulnerabilities. At Qualysec, we have a team of professionals who know Android threats and how to deal with them. They perform tests to identify vulnerabilities and exploit them before the cyber attackers. They also assist the application developer team by suggesting recommendations and providing reference links.
When planning and scoping for an Android application, the penetration tester might need access to the application’s server-side, IP addresses, last update details, and relevant documentation like app design specifications and user end experience. Qualysec’s penetration testing team will work closely with you to find your specific testing purpose and determine the best testing tools and methodologies to ensure the security of the Android application.
At Qualysec, we employ different types of security tools as per the requirement of the client’s industry standard and application needs.
