Course Description

Gain insightful knowledge about a wide spectrum of privacy and security topics in this course. In general, many topics are relevant across platforms and technologies such as cryptography and authentication & authorization standards. Specifically for Android, there is a deep dive into all the individual topics. This includes fundamental concepts, best practices, detailed walkthroughs, and plenty of demos taught by a Tech Lead of a Google Developer Agency. Stefan started developing Android apps – almost from Android’s birth – in 2011, and since then had to design and develop a handful of Android apps. The apps involved privacy and security aspects as well and therefore he wants to share his experience in this course.

Privacy and security topics are often overlooked when designing and developing mobile apps because the concepts are often unclear. However, it is important to develop apps with privacy and security in mind to improve UX, data safety, and finally user satisfaction. Depending on the app to be developed, there may be special requirements when it comes to privacy and security, too. Furthermore, when you apply for a job at any of the big FAANG companies, system design questions are likely to involve privacy and security aspects. So, knowing in detail about these topics will help you to stand out against other applicants.
