NoPhish - The Anti-Phishing Training


Phishing is a method used by criminals to harm you in multiple ways. The scammers use so-called phishing e-mails including harmful links. A reliable way to identify phishing e-mails is to check the link, and the associated website address (URL) before you actually click on the link.


NoPhish is an educational training to identify messages with harmful links (also known as phishing). The training teaches how hackers operate and the identification of harmful links, which will be further deepened with appropriate exercises. The materials for NoPhish include posters, apps, and a video. The video was created in cooperation with Alexander Lehmann. The material was evaluated in user-centered studies and different contexts which lead to continiuous improvement of those materials. NoPhish started as a mere concept, which eventually became an educational training as part of the KMU-AWARE project.

Application advice

It is best to start with the 5 minutes video and using the app afterward to consolidate the new knowledge. The app can also be used to teach the basics and the video as a short refresher after some time.

Additional Tools

These tools can help you applying  the newly learned knowledge by helping to identify and judging links:

  • TORPEDO - This Add-On for Thunderbird helps you to identify harmful links in e-mails.
  • QR-Code Scanner App - The Android-App can be used to scan and open QR-codes. The App will block an immediate opening of a website if an URL is attached to the QR-code. The URL will be displayed to the user, which enables an inspection before entering the webpage.
