  1. Act Like a Hacker

The finest technique to stop a breach or a hack is to plot that breach. This will aid developers and testers to see the gaps and risks as they occur. Furthermore, the attack would be from external as an outside intruder with malevolent intentions. The ‘attack’ can be caused in numerous forms, through a mobile network or a public wi-fi to see the influence on the performance and the security factors.

At the same moment, an ethical hack has to be a planned choice and must be backed up with an appropriate plan. The plan must emphasize and record every step to guarantee that no stone is unturned and each step is authenticated. Even software testing tools can be applied to assess the behavior that leads to the ultimate crash.

  1. Monitor Against Networks

Poor network and a good network. An app can perform in a different way under both network circumstances. Therefore, it is important to test your app in both situations. Particularly, under poor network circumstances, the app can demonstrate unpredictability, poor performance, leading to a failure. Therefore, to guarantee that the software’s functionality remains constant under all network situations, it is suggested to test the app under slow network conditions.

  1. Guarantee Compatibility with The Device

One of the utmost benefits of guaranteeing compatibility is to improve the user experience. When you evaluate for compatibility, you authenticate the app’s User Interface (UI), processing power, loading capacity, and numerous background threads on a specific device. Nevertheless, there is less opportunity that you might be able to cover each device, OS, and outline while testing your app. Nonetheless while strategizing your testing procedures, it is significant to prioritize.
