How do upcoming changes in SDK certificate validation affect my Android app?

Last Updated:

The Google CT service used in certificate validation for our SDK is changing.  As this is a free service, we have no control over the changes but are partnering with Google on this issue. Google is committed to making CT enforcement easier on Android in the future.

In light of the planned changes, we highly recommend that you upgrade any Android application that uses any version of the Pendo SDK to the latest version, 2.21.1, for the app to get optimal use of Pendo services, such as Guides or analytics.

What do I need to do?

Update your Android app to SDK 2.21.1 and release it to the Google Play Store.

Is there a workaround?

Unfortunately, there is no workaround this time.

What happens if we don’t do this?

Users with older Pendo SDKs on their phones will still be able to collect analytics and deliver guides. However, it is recommended to update your Android app.

Is there a security risk?

There is no security risk for a device running an older version of the Android mobile SDK.

Note: Any additional questions can be directed to Pendo’s support team via the Resource Center.
