    Google Play Console: is it safe to use internal test, alpha/beta test before release?

    Hello everyone,

    I've developed a game for android and uploaded the signed APK to Google Play console.
    Before publishing it officially on Google Play Store, I would like to setup an internal test (or an alpha/beta test) to get feedback from selected users (ex. from Fiverr) and find if there are bugs to fix.
    Is this a safe procedure or there is any risk that someone can decompile/steal my work and publish it on Google Play Store before the official release?

    Also, I've read that it is possible to use a service named Proguard to obfuscate APKs before releasing, to make them harder to decompile. Is it possible to use Proguard also with APKs built with Clickteam Fusion?

    Thanks
    Fab.

    Faber, lets try with close alpha/beta test.
    In this mode apk will be available only for selected users verified by google account.
    I've got 2 projects in close tests. I share it for 5 testers and in google stats I've got 5 installations. So, I've hope nobody found my apk since spring 2017

    Ok Fernando, no problem for Proguard.
    Shaku88, thanks for sharing your experience, looks like you're not having problems with your testers.
    But what I want to know is if, potentially, a tester could steal/upload my game on Google Play Store before me. Honestly, I don't think it is possible as long as the app is signed, but I want to make sure to avoid problems with a game I've worked on for a lot of time.
    Any help is appreciated, thanks
