Safe Links - Usage and Description

2021

Safe Links


 

  • Safe Links is a tool used to prevent users from connecting to malicious links by confirming the links authenticity simultaneously as the user clicks.
  • Put your mouse over a link to verify its original URL. At the bottom you will notice the safe link that the user will be forwarded to for Safe Links to scan.

  • You could see a link in your mailbox like the one pictured below. Do not be alarmed, this is just a safe link auto generating for your protection.

  •   If the user clicked a link that contains a malicious URL the user will be redirected to a form that tells the user the link is malicious.
  • If you are redirected to a page resembling the one below please contact either the IT Help Desk or IT Security.
