We no longer support legacy builds. We did not obfuscate (or encrypt) the code in the legacy build. It might be that the location of your source code was different then. Now the Cordova requires specific directory structure, that means all your source code will be under www folder. You can use the plugin you mentioned to encrypt the html and js files. To use this plugin, add it as a third-party plugin through Plugins Manager on Projects tab.


I have installed the plugin in Plugins Manager on Projects tab. I even got the message Plugin successfully added. After adding the plugin i again built the apk file. Then renamed that apk file to zip to check, but the files were as it is, all code was visible.

In order to perform encryption on the files do i have to add any code in html files? Please help.

Amishi -- that plugin uses hooks scripts, which our build system does not currently support, they are removed by the build system for security purposes. We are working on a build system that would support this, but today that plugin will not work with our system.
