I would like to add an feature in your settings tab that allows you to switch off and on
Basically, what the switch does is that if you’ve already reported/resolved an phishing site, it will warn you if you want to report it again, if you press yes then the user can press “Start takedown” - but if no, it will do nothing.
A good feature to make sure you aren’t reporting a site multiple times.
I agree on this thread. It would be useful for something like that to be implemented.
As a matter of fact, some hosts did get annoyed when we accidentally sent the ticket twice.
Yeah, You’ll be so much more productive instead of putting reported links into databases and then checking the database to make sure you won’t report it multiple times.
I mean, our currently system is basically a notepad file. It does the same thing but worse.
I have an notepad file too.
I’ve just deployed a beta version of this feature
From now on, if you’re scanning a URL you already have a case open for, you’ll see a banner giving you a link to the existing case
- This will only work for cases opened since this latest release, it can’t warn you about your previous cases
- It’ll only work if your account is enabled for beta testing (which you can now tell because your username in the top right will have this new user icon):
Ah, I just saw the avatar.
I have the Beta Tester avatar thingy, but I just wanna know, how do you achieve/get it?
It’s an entirely manual process but roughly it’s given to people:
- who use Phish Report a lot (it’s no use testing a new feature on someone who only visits once a month)
- who’ve given good feedback in the past (it’s no use testing a feature on someone who won’t tell you it’s broken!)
