Phish Alert Button (PAB)

The Office of Information Technology has installed the Phish Alert Button (PAB) in your email client. Learn how this tool works and how you can use it to help keep your organization safe from malicious phishing emails.

When do I use it?

Click the PAB if you believe you have received a phishing email or any potentially dangerous email. Any emails you report using the PAB will be automatically deleted from your inbox. The emails you report will also be forwarded to a designated contact within your organization for analysis.

The PAB should only be used to report emails you believe to have malicious intent. If you are receiving spam or marketing emails, you should not use the PAB to report these. You can delete these types of emails or add the sender or sender's email domain to a block list.

How do I use it?

To report an email as a phishing email:

  1. Click the Phish Alert text, a prompt will ask you... "Are you sure you want to report this as a phishing email?"
  2. Click the Report Phishing button to report the email.

Upon clicking, the email will be deleted from your inbox and forwarded to the OIT Service Desk for analysis.
