Powtoon Security Bug Bounty Program

Bug Bounty Program

Powtoon takes the security of its application seriously and is always looking for ways to improve the security. As part of Powtoon's commitment to security, we encourage responsible reporting of any vulnerabilities that may be found in our site or application and the techniques used to exploit them. 


We make it a priority to resolve confirmed issues as quickly as possible in order to best protect customers. We invite security researchers to investigate vulnerabilities in our site or applications, so long as your findings follow this responsible research and disclosure policy.

House Rules

Please review these terms before you test and/or report a vulnerability:

  • Report any vulnerability you’ve discovered promptly through the official channels.

  • Avoid privacy violations, denial of service, destroying data or any harmful acts that may negatively affect Powtoon or its users (e.g. Spam, Brute Force, Denial of Service, etc).

  • Be the first person to report the vulnerability.

  • Refrain from disclosing the vulnerability until we've addressed it.

  • If a vulnerability provides unintended access to data, limit the amount of data you access to the minimum required for effectively demonstrating a Proof of Concept and cease testing.

  • Describe the technical severity of the finding. The Vulnerability Rating Taxonomy is the baseline guide used for classifying technical severity. The Common Vulnerability Scoring System Version 3.1 Calculator provides a scoring guidance

  • Do not engage in extortion.
