Android Application testing with Android Emulator and Burp Suite - Basic Tutorial

After getting some requests over social media and Youtube comments regarding Android app testing, I decided to make this simple and very basic Android app testing video

This tutorial is for educational purpose only.

This is a very basic video in which I have tried to explain how you can start with an Android application testing with Android Emulator and Burp Suite.

There are many other things related to Android app testing which I have not mentioned or shown in the video. For example, Android app static analysis, Root detection Bypass, SSL pinning Bypass etc.

Also, all the Android applications are not compiled to be installed and run on Emulator. Real Android devices use armv7 architecture while Emulator uses your computers's architecture which is Intel Architecture. 

So, if the Android app is not compiled to be installed and run on Intel Architecture you will get an error like "INSTALL_FAILED_NO_MATCHING_ABIS".
