How do I stop a Phishing campaign already in progress?


You can cancel a campaign by following the steps below:

  1. Navigate to Phishing > Active Campaigns
  2. Click the campaign name on the Campaign Overview screen.
  3. This will take you to the campaign summary screen, on which you will see a Campaign Actions button in the upper right corner. Select Campaign Actions.
  4. Click Edit Campaign
  5. Scroll to the bottom of the campaign editor.
  6. On the left, click Cancel Campaign.


  • If campaign has auto-enrollment configured, the auto-enrollment assignment will be deleted.
  • Cancelling a campaign will cancel all pending emails from being sent if the campaign is still sending.
  • Data collection will end for users who click on links.
  • Teachable Moments or Data Entry pages will not be displayed.
  • A campaign can be deleted after it is Canceled.
  • Deleting a campaign will remove the campaign from reports forever.
  • A campaign can be archived and unarchived after it has been canceled.
  • Archiving just toggles the campaigns within report views, nothing more.
