Discover and $eek! Elevated rewards for Google Nest & Fitbit gadgets



We at the moment are trying to deepen this relationship and speed up the trail towards constructing safer gadgets. Beginning as we speak, we are going to introduce a brand new vulnerability rewards construction for submissions impacting good house (Google Nest) and wearables (Fitbit) gadgets by our Bug Hunters platform.


We’re paying increased rewards retroactively for eligible Google Nest and Fitbit gadgets studies submitted in 2021. And, beginning as we speak, for the subsequent six months, will double the reward quantity for all new eligible studies relevant to Google Nest & Fitbit gadgets in scope.

We’ll proceed to take studies on our internet purposes, providers, and cell apps at their current reward ranges. Please hold these coming!

An enhanced rewards program

Constructing on our earlier applications to enhance gadgets’ embedded safety posture, we’re bringing all our first-party gadgets below a single program, beginning with Google Nest, Fitbit, and Pixel.
This program extends the Android Safety Reward Program, making it simpler for researchers to submit a vulnerability in first-party gadgets and enhancing consistency throughout our severity assignments. Consult with the Android and Google Units Safety Reward Program for extra particulars.

What pursuits us?

We encourage researchers to report firmware, system software program, and {hardware} vulnerabilities. Our broad variety of platforms supplies researchers with a smorgasbord of environments to discover.

What’s subsequent?

We might be on the convention this 12 months! The VRP workforce is trying ahead to assembly our safety friends in individual. We’ll be speaking concerning the structure of a few our gadgets, hoping to present safety researchers a head begin to find vulnerabilities. We’ll have loads of swag, too!

We’ll proceed to boost the researchers’ expertise and participation. We intend so as to add coaching documentations and goal areas that curiosity us as we develop this system.
