Mobile hacking has become an essential part of the bug bounty hunter’s tool belt as more and more companies are doubling down on mobile and investing in the security of their iOS and Android applications. As part of our determination to ensure you have the tools you need to be successful on new programs and scope, we’re dedicating February to Android Hacking Month here at HackerOne.

According to HackerOne’s 2019 Hacker Report, 3.7% of the hacker community on HackerOne hacks on the 300+ Android assets available on our platform. Over the next few weeks, we hope to showcase the amazing work being done by these hackers to teach and inspire more hackers to do the same in the future.
