Connecting Your GitHub and Stack Overflow Accounts

You can expand your program opportunities by connecting to the following accounts:

  • GitHub account
  • Stack Overflow account

Crowdcontrol utilizes pre-existing information about your security and development skills to recommend the best matching programs. You can now connect your external social profiles to Bugcrowd. The integrations use OAuth to actively include any changes from other social profiles into Bugcrowd, allowing for a dynamic collection of all your information. It is always up-to-date. Bugcrowd takes privacy of your information seriously, so the social profile linking is optional and you can opt-in for it. The integration only uses public information from these sources to decorate your profile and recommend programs to you. To enable this, go to your Profile page > Portfolio Accounts, and click Connect an account. You can connect your Bugcrowd profile to Github, StackOverflow, and PentesterLab.
