  • Avoid data deletion, unauthorized data access, and service disruption while testing the vulnerability you found
  • Don’t ask for compensation for your report

Our commitment

  • We’ll let you know we got your report
  • We’ll give you an estimate of how long the fix will take
  • We’ll tell you when we’ve fixed the vulnerability

Our thanks

If (and only if!) you'd like to be recognized for your contribution, we’d love to add you to our Heroes of Pinterest list, by name or anonymously. We’d also like to send you a little something as a thank you—include your preferred shirt style, size, and mailing address in your report.
