2021 set new records in the mobile application economy. According to a review of the global app ecosystem, first-time app installs grew to 143.6 billion during the year. While it’s true the rise of mobile apps will be critical for business growth, it’s essential that developers address guidelines for how data is collected within apps. Especially how it’s set out by regulators such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and more.
CookiePro Mobile App Consent makes it easy to implement privacy by design into an organization’s mobile strategy. CookiePro’s solution scans and re-scans an organization’s mobile app for privacy permissions, frameworks, and software development kits (SDKs). It will then generate a report to help business units and developers understand the “privacy health” of the app. Enabling scanning and report generation through an API simplifies the operational task of verifying the app before a release. In addition, the platform provides organizations flexible methods to collect user consent within their applications and gives users greater control over their settings with a privacy preference center.
Mobile App Scanning API Promotes CI/CD Best Practices
CookiePro by OneTrust understands the manual effort that can go into building and managing mobile applications. This is why CookiePro built a Mobile App Scanning API to help support CI/CD pipeline for developers. CookiePro’s Mobile App Scanning Solution provides a simple, scalable API for uploading, scanning, and re-scanning apps for both iOS and Android.
CookiePro supports the continuous integration (CI) and continuous deliver (CD) agile methodology. It’s important for developers to have a consistent way to build and package applications while automating the delivery to selected infrastructure environments without any major hurdles. CookiePro Mobile App Scanning API removes the time-consuming task of downloading, packaging, and uploading files to initiate app scans. After an organization’s application is ready for release, the API functionality now automatically triggers the scan.
Why is Mobile App Scanning Important?
As one of the first important steps in setting up a CMP for your mobile applications, CookiePro’s scanning functionality enables businesses to understand the data that is being collected from the application. Especially SDKs, tracking technologies, and third parties accessing user data. Additionally, categorizing SDKs based on data processing (strictly necessary, performance, targeting, etc.) A combination of these considerations will give a clear picture of your app’s privacy health.
