How do I take down a phishing page hosted by Google?
Hi @Donna_L ,
Thanks for participating in the CheckPhish community and asking your question!
Since Google has many services on the cloud, we will be covering phishing takedown hosted on Google Servers but we will also add a bonus at the end of the page.
Please add your name and email address as contact information, so the Google team can verify and reach out to you with updates on the takedown request.
Please select “Cloud Storage” as a service since the URL we are going to report is hosted on their cloud/server.
We have to select the date of abuse, this can be the time you’ve received/detected the Malicious URL/IP.
Abuse Details: we have to provide details of the abuse, it needs to be under 1000 characters (they have a 1000 characters limit) so we have to be short and specific.
NOTE: We can use the template like below we have in the screenshot.
We can even provide an attachment in the form of a (PDF/Image/Email Header/etc.) which can help the team investigate the abuse.
Now we just need to click on “Submit” and we have successfully reported the URL to the Google Cloud team.
Below you can find other sites that you can use for other types of Abuse which are hosted on Google Infrastructure.
