Responsible Disclosure

We take the security of our systems seriously, and we value the security community. The disclosure of security vulnerabilities helps us ensure the security and privacy of our users. We ask all researchers to follow the guidelines below.

We require that all researchers:

  • Make every effort to avoid privacy violations, degradation of user experience, disruption to production systems, and destruction of data during security testing;
  • Perform research only within the scope set out below;
  • Use the identified communication channels to report vulnerability information to us; and
  • Keep information about any vulnerabilities you’ve discovered confidential between yourself and Veriff until we have resolved the issue.

If you follow these guidelines when reporting an issue to us, we commit to:

  • Not pursuing or supporting any legal action related to your research;
  • Working with you to understand and resolve the issue quickly (including an initial confirmation of your report within 5 (five) working days of your submission);
