Price introduction

Last Updated: Sep 26, 2021

The Mobile Security Armor (MSA) service is billed in subscription mode. You must purchase the service before you can use it. If you have activated Mobile PaaS (mPaaS), you can enjoy a seven-day free trial of the MSA service since an APK or AAB package is uploaded. After the free trial period ends, the system notifies that the service has expired. To continue to use the service, you must purchase the MSA service. For more pricing information of the MSA service, see Prepaid.

An MSA service can reinforce only one application. The service is bound to the application based on the APK or AAB package name. When you upload the APK or AAB, the MSA service verifies the package name of the uploaded APK or AAB.

  • If the APK or AAB package name has not been bound to an MSA service, and an MSA service is available during uploading, the system will bind the package name to the available MSA service. The binding process automatically occurs in the background without affecting the upload process.
  • If the APK or AAB package name has not been bound to an MSA service, but no MSA services are available during uploading, the system displays a message to prompt you to purchase an MSA service.
  • If the APK or AAB package name has been bound to an MSA service that has not expired, the upload process proceeds without interruption. When the service time is 30 days left, the system displays a message to indicate the remaining service time.
  • If the APK or AAB package name has been bound to an MSA service that has expired, the system displays a message to indicate that the service has expired and a new MSA service needs to be purchased.
Note: The MSA service for applications is billed in subscription mode. Therefore, a purchased MSA service cannot be renewed. Ensure that a new MSA service is purchased and assigned to the application before the previous service is about to expire.
