How to report security vulnerability or a bug?

Reporting bugs

If you feel that you have found a bug on our website or in your widget, before reporting it, please check:

  1. Browse our support page to see if similar problem was already reported. For instance broken images in the widget is not a bug, but a result of expired access token.
  2. If your widget behaves weirdly without any modifications on your end and you are using custom CSS for your widget, please check our blog to see if any updates were issued recently. Sometimes the HTML structure or class names changes in the widget. Blog post usually covers the changes and gives you the alternatives that you can use in your Custom CSS.

If you found a bug that is not mentioned on the support page nor it’s the fault of the Custom CSS and widget update, please report this bug via our Support form. Someone from our team will review your support ticket, investigate and take further actions to resolve the issue.

  • Hello Team, just wanted to ask, are there any rewards for valid security vulnerabilities?

      Hi there! We do not offer monetary rewards for vulnerability disclosures. We can offer a free widget upgrade add-on for the selected widget as a reward for discovered, valid security vulnerabilities.
