Block Illegal App Copies
Approov app attestation blocks everything except your genuine and untampered mobile app, running in a safe environment from accessing your backend API’s, so you can eliminate the threat of cloned and copied apps once and for all.
Mobile Gaming Item
Detect and Block Cheating Tools and Emulators
Approov safeguards against cheat engines, including GameGuardian, and detects emulators like BlueStacks to ensure your mobile game functions as intended, thwarting cheaters.
Mobile Gaming Item
Block Rooted, Jailbroken and Modified Devices
Approov protects iOS, WatchOS, Android and HarmonyOS by detecting rooted or jailbroken devices as well as the presence of GameGuardian, Cycript, Cydia, Xposed, Frida, Magisk, Zygisk and others.
Mobile Gaming Item
Protect Against Runtime Attacks on the Game
Dynamic instrumentation tools can tweak mobile games at runtime. Approov RASP attests the actual executing code, providing robust and continuous protection against any runtime tampering.
Mobile Gaming Item
Stop Man-in-the-Middle Attacks
By intercepting and modifying SSL certificate checks an attacker can intercept and manipulate encrypted data. Approov Dynamic Certificate Pinning protects from mobile Man-in-the-Middle attacks and makes it easy to manage and rotate certificates over-the-air.
Mobile Gaming Item
Prevent Exploitation of Secrets
Approov keeps API keys and certificates securely in the cloud, delivering them “just-in-time” only when app and device integrity checks are passed. You can rotate them easily and immediately via over-the-air updates. It also works for any third party APIs you use.
Mobile Gaming Item
Stop Bypassing Payments
You monetize your game with in-app purchases (IAPs), but attackers can use hacking tools to bypass protections and access these paid features for free. Approov detects and blocks any manipulation and stops any attempts to bypass in-app purchases.
Mobile Gaming Item
Prevent Player Account Takeover
Only your app has access to your APIs, preventing automated credential stuffing scripts from compromising players' online accounts. Approov ensures that only requests from an authentic, unaltered version of your game are allowed, thwarting hacking attempts arising from data breaches in other gaming services.

We saw an immediate 99.9% reduction of malicious access to our backend resources once Approov was implemented. Approov’s ability to provide unlimited and unthrottled protection is unlike native or any other mobile apps solutions.
