Twitter API keys found leaked in over 3,200 apps


In the news, Twitter API keys have been found leaked in over 3,200 apps.

The main cause of these data leaks is developers embedding keys in applications. This is compounded by the dearth of platforms that provide an easy-to-use, safe mechanism for handling keys on a large scale.

The solution is to provide developers with a platform where they are free from the complexities of dealing with security. Such a digital platform lets developers mark data as secure, while the platform services then take care of security-related concerns. This way, developers never have to embed keys on applications.
