• New Phishing Reporting Button for Email

    Report Phishing Button

    In response to recent phishing attacks, the PPS IT Department has added a tool to your Outlook email application in order to help make reporting phishing email attempts quick and easy. The “Report Phishing” button is available in Outlook -- Desktop, Web Client and Mobile App.

     

    How it works

    1. If you suspect that an email is a phishing attempt, just click on the icon.
    2. A confirmation message will pop-up. Clicking “OK” will send an email to the PPS IT Department.
    3. After reporting, the email will be deleted from your inbox.

    Note: A Phishing attack is different than a Spam message. Spam is unsolicited emails that try to sell a product or service, whereas Phishing attacks are malicious emails designed to trick large groups of people into sharing information or allowing malicious code to run on their device.
