TikTok launched the Bug Bounty program to strengthen security

The video app is in a difficult situation due to sanctions from countries like India, Pakistan, and Indonesia and the ongoing war with the US government. Instead of sinking into the abyss of despair, the company, which is facing many challenges at once, seems to be fighting like a true warrior on the battlefield.

TikTok is partnering with several platforms to enhance its image, such as TikTok recently partnering with OpenSlate for advertiser brand protection.

It has now announced the launch of the Bug Bounty program in partnership with HackerWan. The Bug Bounty program is an extension of the already-running Vulnerability Disclosure Program, the company said.

Explaining the purpose of the event in a blogpost, TikTok said the partnership with Hackervan would help the company secure the support of security researchers, experts, academics, and other independent individuals capable of detecting bugs and vulnerabilities.

This bounty program helps tens of thousands of TikTok users provide more security while running the app and frees them from potential risks and dangers.

This is not the first time TikTok has sought help from cybersecurity and research companies. TikTok has already taken such measures to ensure the security of its platform from cyber attacks.

Apart from TikTok, many other tech companies have repeatedly offered bug bounty programs to get help from security companies.
