Phish Alert button for Google Chrome

Reporting threats and suspicious messages observed by our community is one of the most useful tools in our cybersecurity arsenal. We have recently deployed a new tool that makes it even easier to report phishing messages. The Phish Alert button is an extension for the Google Chrome web browser that will add an new button to your Gmail inbox. Clicking the new Hook button will report the suspicious message to the email admin and security team. The button sends over the full email including forensic information that makes it a lot easier to block similar messages and protect our community. To take advantage of this new tool you will need to use the Google Chrome browser and login to the browser with your TCNJ credentials. Instructions can be found on the helpdesk web site. Reporting Phishing Through Google Chrome

Even without the Phish Alert extension you can always report any suspicious messages to abuse@tcnj.edu
