Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Markus Neuhoff, and welcome to my course, Securing Android User Data with Kotlin. I'm an Android developer with a passion for sharing technical knowledge. Storing user data is a key consideration for every Android app, and there are a ton of different approaches to take. This course is designed to give you the vital information needed to properly safeguard your users' data. Some of the major topics that we will cover include: how to decide which storage option to use, storing unstructured user data, creating and saving files to internal storage, sharing our files with other apps, and finally retrieving files from other apps. By the end of this course, you'll know the different options available for user storage on Android, how to select the right one, and how to implement it. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with building a basic Android app using Kotlin. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Android development with courses on Android Jetpack and interacting with network data. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to store user data with the Securing Android User Data with Kotlin course here at Pluralsight.
