Since i developed both backend and mobile application, there is something i need to protect my API. So, i came out an idea where i need to restrict access from public by app package information. I have been this using for awhile now.

Yes i know, it is not secure enough — no system is safe by the way. Purpose of security layer is to block and slowing down the attackers movement.
