When building an app, it's important to protect your app and your users from attackers. If you don't take the necessary precautions, attackers can steal personal information from apps, access files on a device, or even control an app's behavior. If your app uses or collects personal information from users, you must publish a privacy policy to inform your users about how their information is handled. For more information, see Personally identifiable information.

In addition to these concepts, there are some general software security considerations that you should be familiar with. These considerations include using safer versions of common C functions, declaring and grouping structures, and creating macros correctly.
