Does an Ionic app use non-exempt encryption?


I’m not sure, if this is the right category, so please sorry if this is wrong.

As I assume, quite a number of people here are developing apps, that are about to be released through the app stores. Now, while preparing our first release, I’m unsure about the encryption related export compliance. Our app is loading data from a remote REST API, and this is of course done through HTTPS. The actual HTTPS connection is established by some iOS code, as the app is basically a browser. So, does that mean, that the app just uses exempt encryption, and we don’t have to bother with all these export compliance stuff?

Thanks and all the best,


Any encryption is the same that you would get if you loaded your app in the browser. So the same SSL/TSL encryption mechanism will be used in your ionic app.
