ModStore Release Announcement: "Using the Phish Alert Button"- 3-minute Short Version


Now live in the ModStore is a new Phish Alert video module:  Using the Phish Alert Button - Basic Use  

This is the PAB (super short version) that we created based on requests from admins who have said, "I have already trained them on how they want my users to process email, I just need them to know about the PAB." It should only be used in that case, where training on processing emails has already been given.  It demonstrates where the PAB is and how to use it in Outlook, G-Suite, and Office 365 in less than 3 minutes!

Do your users know what to do when they receive a suspicious email?

Should they call the help desk, or forward it? Should they forward to IT including all headers? Delete and not report it, forfeiting a possible early warning?


KnowBe4’s Phish Alert button now also works with Outlook Mobile for iOS and Android. This enables your users to report suspicious emails from not only their computer but from their mobile inbox as well.   

(If you’re running Office 365 and want to give your end-users the ability to report suspicious emails from from their mobile inbox, you can enable the official Outlook Mobile app for iOS or Android directly from the KnowBe4 console. )

The Phish Alert Button gives your users a safe way to forward email threats to the security team for analysis and deletes the email from the user's inbox to prevent future exposure. All with just one click!

 Best of all, there is no charge!

  • Reinforces your organization's security culture
  • Incident Response gets early phishing alerts from users, creating a network of “sensors”
  • Email is deleted from the user's inbox to prevent future exposure
  • Easy deployment via MSI file for Outlook, G Suite deployment for Gmail (Chrome)

This is a great way to better manage the problem of social engineering. Compliments of KnowBe4!
