ownCloud Android client 2.5.0 comes with a new Secure Authentication Workflow, improved stability and some enhancements.

OAuth2 adds another security layer to your ownCloud.

The OAuth2 is a mechanism that prevents you from storing your credentials on the device itself. The device gets a token by the server which can be revoked any time. This means there is no login credentials on the device which could be read by thefts. We now protect your android device with the secure authorisation flow.

Trend Micro says in this study (Link to .pdf) : Hacking or malware are not the leading causes of breaches. Device loss is the main cause for Data Breaches.

For more information on OAuth2 check out this article by DigitalOcean.
