Well, let me tell you that if you observe a security related bug on any website with a proper proof, the technology developers and organizations offer you compensation for reporting flaws and this is known as the “Bug Bounty Program” or “vulnerability rewards program.” Intel, Yahoo, Snap chat, Apple, and Hacker One, are the companies in 2020 that are offering recompense for reporting bugs.
