FAQ

What is OpenPhish?

OpenPhish is a fully automated self-contained platform for phishing intelligence. It identifies phishing sites and performs intelligence analysis in real time without human intervention and without using any external resources, such as blacklists.

How does OpenPhish collect phishing URLs?

OpenPhish receives millions of unfiltered URLs from a variety of sources on its global partner network. The phishing detection engine of OpenPhish singles out live phishing URLs and extracts their metadata, which includes targeted brands (when applicable), network and geographical locations, phishing kits and drop accounts.

Why certain known phishing URLs are not listed on OpenPhish?

OpenPhish reports only new and live phishing URLs. We keep track of the detected phishing URLs and do not report any URL more than once within any given 14-day period. We do not report any dead phishing URLs as they do not pose any threat.

How can I report phishing URLs?

If you are interested in sharing URLs (phishing or not) with us, please contact us at contact@openphish.com.

How can I remove my website from your feed?

The short answer - you can't. OpenPhish neither maintains its own blacklist nor can remove your website from third party blacklists. OpenPhish only provides a feed of exact live phishing URLs and never flags the entire website/domain as malicious. If you have questions about a specific URL related to your website, please email us at support@openphish.com.

How can I report a False Positive?

First, please refer to the False Positive Feed to check if we are already aware of the false positive. If the URL is not in the feed and you believe that we incorrectly identified a phishing URL, please let us know at support@openphish.com.
