Best Practices

When using the Unlockd SDK, follow these best practices to ensure a smooth integration and optimal performance:

Error Handling

  • Always wrap SDK method calls in try-catch blocks to handle errors gracefully.

  • Handle specific error cases based on the error code and display appropriate error messages to the user.

  • Log errors for debugging and monitoring purposes.


  • Keep your API key and secret secure and avoid exposing them in client-side code.

  • Use secure communication channels (e.g., HTTPS) when making API requests.

  • Validate and sanitize user input to prevent security vulnerabilities.


  • Minimize the number of API requests to improve performance and reduce latency.

  • Use caching mechanisms to store frequently accessed data and avoid unnecessary API calls.

  • Implement pagination or lazy loading for large datasets to load data incrementally.


  • Write unit tests to verify the correctness of your integration code.

  • Test error handling scenarios to ensure your application can handle errors gracefully.

  • Conduct thorough testing before deploying to production.

Keeping Up to Date

  • Regularly check for updates and new versions of the Unlockd SDK.

  • Review the changelog and update your integration code accordingly.

  • Stay informed about any deprecations or breaking changes in the SDK.

By following these best practices, you can ensure a reliable and efficient integration of the Unlockd SDK into your application.
