Hi everyone, I am new here and hope that I am posting in the appropriate forum for my question. I have a team developing a website and iPhone/Android app to work with the website as well. So the website stores user information and the apps can access this information and the user can add/edit the information as well from the app instead of using the website. Similar to Facebook. So from what I know the app communicates to a web service to exchange this data. What are recommended methods to secure this data from being compromised and does this communication leave a door open for hackers to hack the database on the server? I am sorry if I sound completely noob on this topic, but I don't have much knowledge about apps. I have knowledge about websites, and that part I have all security measurements ensured, but now I am worried that the app will leave some vulnerabilities up and want to cover all corners. I appreciate any help and thank you for taking the time to help me.
