Security Research & Reporting Security Vulnerabilities

  • Updated
We are committed to protecting the security of patrons and creators by addressing security issues responsibly and in a timely manner.

If you're a security expert or researcher and believe you have discovered a security-related issue with Patreon, we appreciate your help in disclosing the issue to us responsibly. 

We require that you:
  • Use the form below to submit a potential vulnerability. Security researchers must include detailed information with steps for us to reproduce the vulnerability.
  • Give us a reasonable amount of time to respond to the issue before making any information about it public.
  • Please refrain from: 
    • Accessing or modifying user information without permission of the account owner.
    • Exposing other users to vulnerabilities. All testing should be done on your own user pages and only between accounts you control. This includes pledging to actual creators. If you need to test the pledging functionality, create a second test account and set it to “creator” status.
  • Act in good faith so as not to degrade the performance of our services (including denial of service).
