How to Obfuscate SWF Files for Protection

June 28, 2012 / Posted by Dupont on Utilities

If you don’t want your SWF files to be stolen by others and post on some websites else, claiming to be their own, you need to protect your SWF file before publishing online. Here we will introduce a SWF obfuscator to help your protect your SWF files.

The reasons why we obfuscate SWF files not encrypt them with a password are:

1. We still need to publish the output SWF files on web, which is impossible for password encrypted SWF files.

2. Once the password protection is cracked, your SWF files will be completely open to the hacker.

3. Obfuscate renames variables, features etc. in a definite way and thus make the subsequent compilation impossible.

Of course the obfuscation protected SWF files are not 100% percent safe, but the more difficult a thing is to steal, the less chance there is of it being stolen.

Step 2: Choose SWF flash encryption parameters.

Choose the SWF encryption settings for every sing SWF file or apply the same setting to all the imported SWF files.

Step 3: Specify an output location and start encryption.

Set output directory in Output frame to save encrypted SWF flash files. Click the right bottom Encrypt button to start to encrypt SWF flash files upon the encryption ways you choose.
