    The industry of mobile healthcare applications is expanding day by day, so it is important to increase concern about the protection of sensitive health information. Unfortunately, the market consists of many healthcare applications that do not protect data well enough and are not in line with the European regulation. The goal of master's thesis is the evaluation of mobile health applications from privacy protection point view and from the aspect of compliance with General Data Protection Regulation. In our work we developed indicators for the protection of sensitive data in health applications and indicators of compliance with General Data Protection Regulation. With the help of open source tools, we developed the architecture for security analysis of mobile applications. We randomly chose ten applications, which we analyzed and evaluated against the developed indicators. With the results we presented the current situation and proposed improvements and recommendations for developers of mobile health applications to suit them with current legislation.
