Malcore is a software tool that checks the code of mobile applications for potential issues and assesses overall security and privacy risk. It does this by looking at the code, software development kits used and the permissions requested by the app. A Malcore risk score represents the overall cumulative total of issues found.

The Malcore tool also checks for the presence of trackers, which are used to collect data about how the app is being used. Some trackers are legitimate, but others may be used for advertising or to collect data about users without their knowledge or consent.

Scores are given to the issues found based on their severity, with dangerous permissions and high severity warnings getting the highest scores.
