Microsoft Forms and proactive phishing prevention

Tip: Create a survey, quiz, or poll with Microsoft Forms. Want to create an advanced survey? Try Microsoft Forms Pro.

Phishing attacks attempt to steal sensitive information through emails, websites, text messages, or other forms of electronic communication that often look to be official communication from legitimate companies or individuals. The information that phishers attempt to steal can be passwords or other credentials.

In Microsoft Forms, we enable automated machine reviews to proactively detect malicious password collection in forms and surveys.

If you suspect a form or survey you've received is attempting to collect passwords or other sensitive information in Microsoft Forms, report it to help prevent yours and other's private information from getting compromised. Below the Submit button at the bottom of the suspected form, click Report abuse.

You can be diligent about protecting yourself from phishing by never providing personal information, such as passwords, in any form or survey. You can also report online fraud.
