    Hi guys! at the moment I'm making games on android. There are plans to release games for iOS, but there is no time yet. I myself use the iPhone and recently I found my games in an AppStore. Tell me, what should I do in such cases?

    Here are links to games in AppStor:
    Dunk Hop — Tarik Mawjoud https://itunes.apple.com/ru/app/dunk-hop/id1350229507?mt=8
    The Paper Planes — mina banya https://itunes.apple.com/ru/app/the-paper-planes/id1350126860?mt=8
    Gas Station vs Car — mina banya https://itunes.apple.com/ru/app/gas-station-vs-car/id1351478974?mt=8
    Flappy Dunk Ball — mina banya https://itunes.apple.com/ru/app/flappy-dunk-ball/id1351478633?mt=8

    I'm sure, I know that some of you would like to play my games on the iPhone. now you can do it. :)

    1- You have to use encryption when you export your games to Android / IOS.
    2- You can contact Apple to remove the games.

    +1 to what the user above me said and I would like to add that if you trademarked or copyrighted it you can demand all revenue made by the thieves. Goodluck.

    Yes, screenshot everything so even if the developer takes it down you have proof. Since he has done it with several games he hopefully get his Apple Developer Account banned.

    Guys! And where it is necessary to write? I do not have a developer account, and the site does not give me such information.

    Don't you find it a bit ironic that someone stole your game "Flappy Dunk Ball"?

    Of course not. I spent a lot of time on art and code. And the fact that I made a game based on a successful product is a common practice if you want to earn. So everything works, even ketchapp. if you think otherwise, you just do not understand anything.

    Tell me please, how can I encrypt my games? Or it happens automatically in new versions of BB?

    You can encrypt your games by ticking the encryption box in the settings screen.
    It is a feature that has been added since BB 2.2.9 I believe,

    BTW I believe it would be a good feature to add encryption too to the game atlasses @Andy

    Hi,

    I saw that you had trouble with people copying your game. Have you used the encryption feature on Buildbox? We have had the same problem and are just about to do an upload of our app and want to use the feature but it says that if our app is encrypted then we have to provide export compliance documentation? Do you know where we can get this?

    Sorry I could really use some help.

    Thanks in advance.

    You don’t need to supply anything just upload, check no for encryption, it will be fine.
    Also just a tip, the encryption doesn’t work anymore, they have found a way around it for reverse engineering.
