Chrome has always been built with security at its core, by a passionate worldwide community as part of the Chromium open source project. We’re proud that community includes world class security researchers who help defend Chrome, and other Chromium based browsers.

Back in 2010 we created the Chrome Vulnerability Rewards Program which provides cash rewards to researchers for finding and reporting security bugs that help keep our users safe. Since its inception the program has received over 8,500 reports and paid out over five million dollars! A big thank you
