The Flutter team takes the security of Flutter and the applications created with it seriously. This page describes how to report any vulnerabilities you may find, and lists best practices to minimize the risk of introducing a vulnerability.
Flutter security strategy is based on five key pillars
- Identify: Track & prioritize key security risks by identifying core assets, key threats and vulnerabilities.
- Detect: Detect and identify vulnerabilities using techniques and tools like vulnerability scanning, static application security testing and fuzzing.
- Protect: Eliminate risks by mitigating known vulnerabilities and protect critical assets against source threats.
- Respond: Define processes to report, triage and respond to vulnerabilities or attacks.
- Recover: Build capabilities to contain and recover from an incident with minimal impact.
To report a vulnerability, please email
email@example.com with a description of the issue,
the steps you took to create the issue, affected versions, and if known, mitigations for the issue.
We should reply within three working days.
We use GitHub’s security advisory feature to track open security issues. You should expect a close collaboration as we work to resolve the issue you have reported.
Please reach out to
firstname.lastname@example.org again if you do not receive prompt attention and regular updates. You may also reach out to the team via our public Discord chat channels; however, when reporting an issue, please e-mail
email@example.com instead of Discord or filing a github issue to avoid revealing information about vulnerabilities in public that could put users at risk.
For more details on how we handle security vulnerabilities, please see our internal processes.
Flagging existing issues as security-related
If you believe that an existing issue is security-related, we ask that you send an email to
The email should include the issue ID and a short description of why it should be handled according to this security policy.
We commit to publishing security updates for the version of Flutter currently
We treat security issues equivalent to a P0 priority level and release a beta or hotfix for any major security issues found in the most recent stable version of our SDK.
Any vulnerability reported for flutter websites like flutter.dev does not require a release and will be fixed in the website itself.
Flutter does not have a bug bounty program.
Receiving security updates
The best way to receive security updates is to subscribe to the flutter-announce mailing list or updates to the Discord channel. We will also announce security updates in the technical release blog post.
Keep current with the latest Flutter SDK releases. We regularly update Flutter, and these updates may fix security defects discovered in previous versions. Check the Flutter change log for security-related updates.
Keep your application’s dependencies up to date. Make sure you upgrade your package dependencies to keep the dependencies up to date. Avoid pinning to specific versions for your dependencies and, if you do, make sure you check periodically to see if your dependencies have had security updates, and update the pin accordingly.
Keep your copy of Flutter up to date. Private, customized versions of Flutter tend to fall behind the current version and may not include important security fixes and enhancements. Instead, routinely update your copy of Flutter. If you’re making changes to improve Flutter, be sure to update your fork and consider sharing your changes with the community.
