Protect against WPAPPPatcher

    Question

  • Hi,

    i have found a webpage today where the people are pirating all Windows Phone APPs from the Marketplace and i have found also three of my APPs on this page. i like that the people are paying for my APP. is there a way to protect my APP againt this tool? Maybe a way to check it directly from inside the APP.

  • Hi,

    is there no way to protect my apps against this tool?

    it would help me also if i could determine if the user is using a jailbreaked phone.

  • Apps are encrypted now and I don't think it has been broken, so that are rather some older versions of apps that are pirated. If you want additional protection you can try this:

  • Hi,

    thanks for your help. but i have to say that all apps are still crackable, also with the new encryption.

    My solution is now to disable the possibility to test the APP. Ive published two versions now, a full versión and a limited free version.

  • I just read some cracker forums, from their bad-user's feedbacks  it seems that Instagraph cannot be hacked !!
    I just implemented my old trick: http://www.geekchamp.com/tips/protect-your-windows-phone-app-against--casual--piracy .
    So it seems to be still valid against WPAppPatcher too ;)

    It's funny, I start to monitor against hacking starting from some days after installation, not immediately.
    So these poor users just had the illusion to use my App for free.
    LOL these "hackers" just helped me to promote Instagraph :D

  • The downside is a harder ranking climbing as they count as two separated apps...

  • Wrong, I just passed 1 MILLION downloads for my protected App (Instagraph), 0 piracy.
