Ionic code visibility when published?


#1

After publishing the app on android/IOS is it possible in anyway to view the coding like on a browser using page inspector?

The reason for asking is I want to use AES cryptography but I don’t want anyone being able to view the public key, is this possible?


#2

If you create real application builds there is no way to inspect it. But, if someone gets the apk or ipa --> it is possible to extract the original data.

Thanks for the feedback!

I wouldnt store any sensitive data in sourcecode of an app.
I think that on Jailbreaked iOS devices and rooted android-devices you will have access to all content.


#5

sveinla is correct. Just to second that notion. If someone roots the device they have direct access to the apk. Same goes for IOS.

thanks for clearing that up, If I was creating a public app how would you recommend going on about implementing cryptography?
