About Phishcheck

Built for information security analysts, PhishCheck is designed to quickly gather the information required to investigate a suspicious website. Use PhishCheck to check what lies behind a suspicious URL. Our system will screenshot the website, gather information such as WHOIS, ASN, IP Address, IP Geolocation, and record all resources loaded by the website. PhishCheck then displays all the information you need in one place, saving you time.

Don't see the information you need? Suggest it! Email or tweet your feedback using #PhishcheckMe.

Known Issues

  • We no longer display screenshots of the entire height of the page. This is a limitation in our current screenshot method due to changes in the library. The screenshot returns only the viewport area. A fix is in development.
  • Screenshots unavailable due to timeouts (Phishing webpages aren't built for reliability, and often take too long to return.)
