Phin’s Outlook Phishing Button

In phishing, doing nothing is still a huge liability. With the addition of this feature, users can learn to be secure and adapt their behavior more confidently.

Report a Phish Integration is currently available to select partners only. It will be available to all partners soon.
If you are interested in our closed beta testing, please reach out!

 

What is it?

Phin’s phishing button, Report a Phish API, complements our phishing campaigns and allows an employee to correctly report an email as “phishing”. It doubles as a training tool as well as an email reporting tool and is installed in each employee’s outlook inbox. Our phishing button, phishing templates, and learning moments give the end users what they need to run through real-life phishing simulations in a positive learning environment. 

 

Why did we make it?

In phishing, doing nothing is still a huge liability. With the addition of this feature, users can learn to be secure and adapt their behavior more confidently. Positive reinforcement not only rewards good actions, it also helps simplify the ever-changing world of cybersecurity. 

 

How does it work?

The Report a Phish button will be available in each of the assigned inboxes. By selecting Report Phishing, the user will have one of two experiences depending on the email that is being reported.

When a phishing simulation is reported, the email will be archived and the action will be recorded. To positively reinforce the use of this button, users will see a congratulations message and reminder to keep up the good work.

 When a suspicious email is identified and reported, it is forwarded directly to their MSP and cleaned up from their inbox all at once!

The forwarded emails are flagged with a message from Phin, indicating that the user reported it as phishing.
