Open-source iOS apps: “Should I be concerned with private details?”


Caio: Next question, “I want to open-source my iOS apps…” “to help others and promote my skills.” “Should I be concerned with private release details?” Yes! Never, ever, ever, push passwords, security keys… API keys, user data, or any sensitive data. So, be careful. Now let’s say, if by mistake, you publish something that you shouldn’t, like an API key. You need to revoke that key, create a new one, and make sure it doesn’t happen again. So yes, you need to be concerned, but that shouldn’t stop you from… sharing with the community. Go ahead with your open-source project… just be careful with private details.
