Instead, from the start to the end, this course was created based on the examples found on HackerOne and Bugcrowd. This course will familiarize you with real-life vulnerabilities that have been reported by true bug hunters.
The answer to the question "how to become a bounty hunter" is simple - you have to learn from other bug bounty hunters.
Bug Hunting Is a Lucrative Business
A white hat hacker can make thousands of dollars a day by finding and reporting one big bug to a major company. Think of Uber, Ola, Amazon, Zomato or Facebook. How much would these companies pay to make sure their websites and software are free of bugs? The answer is - a lot!

Who Should Take This Course?
As mentioned above, if you are a complete beginner - do not worry, you can take this course and learn all there is to learn from scratch. However, if you already know a thing or to about bug hunting and consider yourself at an intermediate level, this course will take you even further and widen and deepen your base of knowledge on the subject.
What Is the Bug Bounty Program
The bug bounty program also called the vulnerability rewards program (VRP) is a crowdsourcing initiative where individuals discover and report bugs found in software.
Very often big companies initiate bug bounty programs to supplement penetration tests and internal code audits. In other words, bug bounties are a part of the company's vulnerability management strategy.
That's how white hat hackers and software security researchers get paid. Websites and software vendors run bug bounty programs and pay out cash rewards to make sure their software is absolutely secure.
However, keep in mind that bug reports have to be documented with detailed information - detailed enough so that the organization can reproduce the vulnerability you've submitted. Knowing how to submit a report is a big part of learning how to become a bounty hunter.
Usually, the size of the payment depends on the size of the company and the seriousness of the issue.
So take this course and learn how to become a bounty hunter and earn by hunting bugs hiding in the software of tech giants!
