Creating a phishing simulation using the uPhish template library

Creating and sending your phishing simulation is quick and simple. Here's how to launch a uPhish campaign in five simple steps:

  1. Choosing your theme
  2. Choosing your email
  3. Configuring your simulation
  4. Selecting recipients & scheduling your simulation


Getting started

To get started with creating your phishing campaign, simply sign into your usecure portal > hover over the 'uPhish' tab within the navigation bar > then select 'Create Simulation'.

Step One - Choosing your theme

First, you will need to choose a landing page for your simulated phishing campaign. You will see pre-built uPhish templates on this page, but if you have created custom landing pages you can see them by scrolling down to the Your Saved Templates section.

Step Two - Choosing your email

If you chose one of the uPhish landing page templates, you will see appropriate email templates to fit the landing page's theme. You will also be able to select from all your custom templates by scrolling down to the Your Saved Templates section.

Step Three - Configure your simulation

Now you're able to configure your simulation by editing the following:

  • Simulation name
  • Subject line
  • Sender & sender domain
  • Landing domain

You'll also be able to quality check your campaign with the 'send test email' option at the bottom of the page.

Step Four - Selecting recipients & scheduling your simulation

In this final step, you're able to select your recipients and choose the send date/ time of your simulation.


  • Selecting recipients - Using the two drop-down menus under 'select recipients', you can choose from individual recipients or your pre-made groups (e.g., HR Staff)
  • Staggered email send - To avoid a high number of users receiving your simulation at the same time, you'll have the option to select how many hours your email will distributed over.

Now you can select 'Create Simulation' to deploy your campaign.
