Google wants to improve app quality in the Play Store by launching a new bug detection program that is completely separate from the existing one.

While the current program is focused on finding flaws in sites and operating systems, Google will now pay hackers when they detect vulnerabilities in top third-party Android applications.

They must present their findings directly to the developers and work with them before submitting a report through the HackerOne platform. They will then be able to receive their prize.

Google promises $1,000 for every problem that meets the criteria in the program, the bug hunters will have to look for vulnerabilities in top-rated applications, not in every available app.

The rewards are currently valid if they can find acceptable drawbacks in Dropbox, Duolingo, Line, Snapchat, Tinder, Alibaba, Mail.ru and Headspace. Google plans to invite more application developers in the future, but they must be ready to patch all open vulnerabilities.

One of the largest bug bounties was offered by Microsoft. In 2015, the company increased its bug bounty reward from $50,00 to $100,000. If you want to make similar money while still helping out Google, then you’ll be glad to know the company is offering $100,000 to those who can pull off a major Chromebook hack. The stipulation that the hacker pull off a “persistent compromise” of a Chromebook in guest mode.
