Apps cannot transmit passwords as plain text.


  • Hi, I am making UWP app for the first time. I am storing login credentials in plaintext.I am getting the credentials using http service. Is it required that I use https. Any other alternative?Because my app fails certification showing this error:

    App Policies: 10.5 Modern Cryptography

    If your app collects, stores or transmits personal information, it must do so securely, by using modern cryptography methods.
