Google Analytics Dashboard for WP – Security Program

Every day we do our best to make sure Google Analytics Dashboard for WP (GADWP) is safe and secure. But we’re only human, and there’s always a chance that we missed something. That’s where you come in – find a security weakness in our plugin, report it on HackerOne, and get listed as a contributor!


Google Analytics Dashboard for WP (GADWP) is an open-source plugin for WordPress which connects Google Analytics with your website. You can find the source code on GitHub and submit security reports at HackerOne.
