Security and the monday apps marketplace

Apps in our marketplace built by external developers are reviewed by our team. However, we cannot certify the functionality or security of each app. When you install an app, you will see a list of permissions that the app will have access to. We strongly encourage you to review each app and the permissions thoroughly before adding it to your account. To understand more about the app marketplace security, check this out.



How to build your own app

The monday apps framework allows developers to build views, widgets, and integrations in a low-code environment. We give you the tools to build views and recipes, and you can build whatever your team needs. 

Check out our Builders Homepage which is a one-stop shop that contains links to our apps and API documentation. You can see examples of apps that were built by our team here: monday apps Framework

Not a developer? That's OK, you can still use the apps!

If you're someone who wants to use apps and not build them, simply download existing apps from the apps marketplace or head over to our community.
