Announcing Dropcam’s Bug Bounty Program

As a company that believes in protecting our users and their information, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new Bug Bounty Program. Working with security researchers to ensure the security of Dropcam is a continuous effort of ours, which is why we believe in the practice of disclosure to improve the security of our site.

We’ll be rewarding researchers between $50 and $250 for valid, first-to-find, vulnerabilities they submit for helping ensure the safety and security of our site. Rewards will vary based on the severity of the vulnerability submission. Dropcam is partnering with Bugcrowd, who will be hosting our security program. We will be utilizing their Crowdcontrol platform to manage the triage and reward process of researcher submissions. You can learn more about the detailed rules and information about the scope of our program at our program page.

To acknowledge researchers for working to help make Dropcam more secure, we’ll be listing researchers we reward on the Dropcam Hall-of-Fame. Thank you to security researchers from around the world who are dedicating their time to making Dropcam and the web a safer place!
