Will proguard work to obfuscate hardcoded string

Does proguard work for to secure the hardcoded string,

Hi @naveen_rana,

First of all, welcome to the community!

Regarding strings, ProGuard will not help secure them. This is something our enterprise solution DexGuard can help with via e.g. String and Resource Encryption, not provided with ProGuard.

ProGuard only provide basic obfuscation of names. As you probably know it’s not a security tool, but rather an optimization and shrinkage tool.

Please let me know if anything is not clear.

Kind Regards,


Thanks for the reply, surely i try using DexGuard for this.

Thanks for the clarification.
