Will it effect working of app if I change name of apk using apk editor? It's an VPN app and I want to change apk package name. I'm not the owner of the apk and using apk editor app to modify the name.

  • Some apps contain an "repackaging protection" which will detect name changes and/or resigning and then quit/kill the app. – Robert Aug 11 '18 at 14:10
  • thanks for your answer Robert, but the app runs fine without crash.Asking about background process of data collection by app as the app is related to research. – Dh. Yaduvanshi Aug 11 '18 at 16:44
  • An app that does not crashes necessarily means it runs correctly. If you want to make sure everything is working perform tests, collect the logcat output and scan for Exceptions and decompile the app to understand what it does. Anyway I still not understand why you want to change the package name of an VPN app. – Robert Aug 12 '18 at 17:23
