LINE, the world’s leading messaging platform with innovate business and marketing model, has announced the start of its “LINE Bug Bounty Program,” which offers rewards to users who report vulnerabilities they discover in the iPhone and Android versions of the LINE app. The program will run from August 24 to September 23, 2015.

With the kickoff of this program, LINE’s official website has undergone improvements among which include the addition of a new “Security and Privacy” page. This new page contains LINE’s Privacy Policy, security team information and current safeguards, instructions for users on how they can use LINE’s services more securely, as well as reports regarding patched vulnerabilities and other important information.

LINE already implements stringent security measures, such as testing the security of new releases via a dedicated security team and engaging internal and external experts to address potential application vulnerabilities. With the addition of the user-reported “LINE Bug Bounty Program,” LINE aims to provide an even more safe and secure user experience. Systems which offer rewards to users for reporting security vulnerabilities have been widely adopted by major IT firms across the globe as a cutting edge security measure, allowing them to quickly discover and patch vulnerabilities in order to provide more stable service.

LINE will continue to take any measures possible to protect user privacy and strengthen its security measures in order to ensure the safest and most secure user experience possible. Line was also recently featured at Forbes as one of the most innovative companies of the world.
