Microsoft is rolling out Microsoft Forms proactive phishing detection to improve the product's security by blocking phishing attacks from abusing surveys and forms created using the app.
Microsoft Forms is part of Microsoft's Office 365 cloud-based subscription service and it allows users to create surveys, quizzes, and polls designed to collecting feedback and data online.
"In order to make Forms a more secure service, we are going to enable automatic phishing detection to prevent our customers from losing sensitive data via phishing forms," says an update to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap.
The new feature uses automated machine reviews to "proactively detect malicious password collection in forms and surveys" in an attempt to block phishers from abusing the Microsoft Forms app to create phishing landing pages.
