Denuvo, the widely used digital rights management and anti-tamper technology seen in PC games, is breaching the mobile space. The company behind Denuvo, Irdeto, announced during gamescom that it has launched Mobile Game Protection, a new solution that aims to curb piracy, modding, and cheating in Android games.

According to the company, Denuvo Mobile Game Protection is offering various security features that will guard against these flaws. The security features being offered were listed as follows:
  • Configurable security/performance tradeoff: you choose how much of your app is going to be protected
  • Smart detection of protection points
  • Protect against static or dynamic manipulation of app codes
  • Protection against reverse engineering
  • Root detection
  • Anti-Debugging
  • Anti-Hooking
  • Virtualization
  • Integrity verification
The Denuvo Mobile Game Protection protection is applied to the final APK with "zero operational effort" by developers, per Irdeto. The company also says the solution will have a "minimal impact on user’s gameplay experience" - although this should depend on how much security the developer opts for - and guarantees zero false-positive hacking reports.

To be fair, lots of mobiles games are plagued by cheaters, and the actions taken by the dev are not always enough to stop them

Single player cheats are not a problem for anyone. Now if you're talking about multiplayer, ok on that point we agree.

Who the hell pirates mobile games ? They are all freemium and always online anyway. Not only that but if your game is plagued by hackers it's probably absolute garbage to begin with.

What the fuck ? This is one of the most retarded things I have seen as of late.

They may integrate it, but i'm sure the scene will take care of it, and drm-free releases will appear online, as android apk is easy to mod.

I dabble in a few games on my phone when I'm sitting for an hour or two a day, multiple days a week, at the tae kwon do studio my kids go to....I see a lot of chat on the games of people selling leveled accounts, gold/silver/whatever currency the game uses and such. I'm pretty sure these accounts being sold are from folks finding hacks/cheats and exploiting the games.

So, I can see why the idea of wanting some kind of DRM in place to help prevent cheating would be looked at.

I'm confused, isn't Google Play Games supposed to be taking care of cheating (among other things)? Or is this aimed at games that don't use GPG?

Is GPG active when you get your apk's from alternative stores like blackmart or aptoide?

some of them (like hungry shark world) have pirate offline version were everything is unlocked. For gacha games, hackers can alter the gameplay in pvp... captain tsubasa dream team is sometimes victim of this. It's not ultra common, but it happens often enough to be a legitimate concern. Lastly there's bots who pretty makes any ranked farming event not worth doing.
...Lots of gacha games have mechanics that make them addictive enough that people are willing to spend time hacking them. I quit playing them because it was getting bad for my mental health, they are using predatory tactics.

This better be for offline tablet use only...

This is stupid on so many levels.

I bet the cheats come from places that make stuff like Denuvo..
