When setting up a phishing campaign, you can choose between Credential Harvesting or a click campaign.

In a credential harvesting training campaign, if a participant clicks on the link, they will be redirected to a fake landing page to enter their login credentials. By doing so, they compromise their account. If this were a real attack instead of an exercise, the consequences could be very dangerous.

The participant who provides their credentials will then be redirected to an awareness page that replays the email, but with different clues that should have raised suspicions.

In a click campaign, the participant is directly redirected to a redirection page for evaluation purposes, or to the awareness page for training purposes. Unlike the credential harvesting campaign, there is no landing page to collect login credentials.

If you select "click evaluation campaign" when setting up your campaign, the participant will be redirected to a legitimate site after clicking on the link in the email to avoid them realizing it is an exercise.

These phishing tests allow for shorter campaigns and focus on detecting threats directly within the email. Moreover, these exercises do not go as far as collecting credentials. They can have a greater impact on the company culture and avoid frustrating participants who will have a lesser sense of being "trapped".
