Hey guys, welcome to our blog.
In this blog, I will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of bug bounty hunting, and if you want to start your career in bug bounty hunting, then follow this blog to know.
Let us get started,
What is a bug bounty?
A bug bounty program allows hackers to receive compensation for reporting bugs, also known as vulnerabilities and possible exploits, in organizations’ hardware, firmware, and software. Most commonly, though, they allow organizations to use external resources to find and disclose vulnerabilities that exist within their sensitive applications.

I have seen many people deciding “let us get into bug bounty hunting and earn some bucks” without knowing straight stuff, and a significant problem arises here. First, realize that bug bounty is not what you think it is, but yes, if you make 1000 bucks by finding a bug, that is huge, and that is great but, if you spend a whole year searching for that bug, that’s not appreciable.
You may argue that people like dawgyg make millions from bug bounty hunting. you may say you want to become like him; that’s awesome, but you should also see what it took him to become like that he is doing bug bounty hunting from, let us say, 20 years
Furthermore, another major thing I want to share with you does not to believe in social media blindly; people post that I have found 10,000 dollar bug, 50000 dollar bug, and people will go crazy about it they get many views and comments. Nobody posts about 50 dollar bugs and 100 dollar bugs. and seeing this, people think those guys r making money by bug-hunting; let us get into it
If you want to choose bug bounty hunting as your part-time, yeah, go with it; that’s a great choice, do not choose bug bounty as your only career ultimately.
Some people say I am studying at some university. I am planning to do bug bounty for my essentials. You might want to work for a company because you like them; that is fine, but your primary objective should not be earning money.
When you choose bug bounty to improve your skills and wanting to learn, that is how you will be successful money should be at the bottom, and do not set goals like finding five bugs this month; it would not be realistic. Think about learning things, think about finding bugs
When you decide, I want to earn 5k or make my first bounty, that’s where you’re going to get disappointed.
You want to do bug bounty to improve your skills, that’s fine; go with it; bug bounty is suitable for making colossal money once,100 dollars can be your pocket money, but for others, they may use it for their essentials,
Finally, consider all things and decide what you can do.
I have seen many people r getting into bug bounty blindly without knowing the reality, so consider everything before getting started in bug bounty hunting.
