Communicating with Hackers

You can communicate with hackers by:

  • Commenting on reports
  • Broadcast messaging

Commenting on a Report

You can easily communicate with hackers by commenting within the report. To add a comment on a report:

  1. Select Add comment from the action picker above the comment box.
  2. Select All participants in the next drop-down of the action picker to ensure the comment is visible to the hacker who filed the report.
  3. Type your message in the comment box.
  4. Select Post comment.

The hacker will get a notification in their HackerOne profile and will also be notified by email if they have notifications for the report enabled. If you want to make sure they get the message no matter their notification settings, you can type @hacker’s username in the comment to address them directly.
