Google launches bug bounty program for Android apps

"The portions of the app and any data they store are temporarily added to the device".

The search giant has continued to fortify Play Store against criminals' tricks, but the problem has also continued to persist. Notably, while the list is visible in India, no Try It Now button is showing up for us at the time of writing. As always, it is extremely suggested to keep your Play Store updated to the latest version for you to take advantage of all the new changes, bug fixes, security improvements and other changes. Google opened the development of Instant Apps late last May, but today marks the first time the service has been available straight from the Google Play storefront. Google says: "We're also excited to integrate Android Instant Apps with a 'Try it Now' button on store listings". If satisfied, they can formally download and install it on their mobile device.

The Play Security Rewards Program will evaluate each submission with rewards of $1000 rewarded for submissions that meet the evaluation criteria.

In addition, only certain types of vulnerabilities are applicable for reward payments.

The main purpose of the Try Now feature is that it will tell you which apps are supported by Android Instant Apps. Previously, Google only released a few tools to some developers.

The report has to include a proof-of-concept that works on Android 4.4 devices and higher. Announced at I/O 2017, Android vitals was designed to give developers deeper insight into their app performance, giving them the opportunity to improve app performance.

Software scans cannot match a person's ability to discover "a truly creative hack", Vineet Buch, director of product management for Google Play Apps and Games, said in an interview.

Google has also made some other important tweaks to the store too and revamped the games area with trailers and sections for new and premium games.

Google doesn't want security researchers to inform developers about the bug, before its fixed by the developers.
