Given that guest mode is designed to separate the machine’s user data from those of another person who’s using it as a once off, the company is clearly concerned this could offer an as yet unexploited way into your whole Google life.
The company gave out $2 million last year to hackers it has asked to try to jump over its walls – but so far no one has submitted a successful submission for the Chrome Reward Program concerned with persistent, remote hacking.
There’s no maximum number of submissions you can make, so, if you find one, how about going for two? You’ll not have to work for a year or so after.
I don’t know who’s gonna win this bounty but I’m excited to see the winner If you think you can hack a Chromebook remotely, let us know in the comment and submit it to Google.
