Apple has a $1m bug bounty program. Google is upping the ante…:
Google is willing to award up to $1.5 million to hackers who can successfully hack its Titan M security chip on the company’s Pixel devices as part of an expansion of its Android bug-bounty program unveiled this week.
The company revealed increased payouts to its Android Security Rewards in a blog post Thursday. Google already has paid out more than $4 million in 1,800 reports to those who’ve identified vulnerabilities on the platform, it said.
The expansion of the program focuses mainly on Google’s own technology rather than the greater ecosystem, with the company offering a significant prize for hackers to test the security of its Titan security chip on forthcoming versions of Android.
