Runtime mobile exploration.

objection is a runtime mobile exploration toolkit, powered by Frida, built to help you assess the security posture of your mobile applications, without needing a jailbreak. Supporting both iOS and Android and having new features and improvements added regularly as the tool is used in real world scenarios.
