Hello Everyone, This is my first ever bug that i have found on Facebook. Initially i don’t know anything about bug bounty and cybersecurity. One day i just scrolled the Facebook news feed and I saw the post of Saugat Pokharel brother about the Acknowledged By Facebook Security Team and I quickly text him. He shares something useful tips to me due to which i got my first ever Bounty from Facebook.

Explanation of issue

Now, Let me explain the issue. Once i was testing some LiveStream Feature in Facebook for iOS. In iOS there is option to switch voice as a Page in other Posts and I quickly go to other Page LiveStream and Switch voice as a Page and Comment there then it is posted as a Page Name it works fine till that time. When i try to reply Someone’s Comments it is attributed as Admin’s Personal Identity which is unlikely to happen. I quickly reported this issue to Facebook Security Team.

Proof of Concept

Once reported, they acknowledged my report,they fixed the issue, I found fix bypass of the issue and finally rewarded me with bounty.
