Lure pages are optional and are used in phishing campaigns to provide an extra web landing page after a user clicks an email lure message. They can be used to show a user that they have been tricked before being directed to educational courses or infographics.

Lure pages are configured in the Security Awareness Training console. They can be customized during the creation of a campaign or created after and linked to a campaign. Webroot provides several templates that can be used as they exist or modified to meet the needs of the campaign. It is also possible to create your own lure page from scratch.

To create a custom lure page:
1. Log into the Webroot Management console.
2. Open the Security Awareness Training console.
3. From the left hand navigation menu, click Email to open the Email Templates page.
4. At the top of the page is a small menu with these options, select one:
  • Site. Select to view the email templates that have been stored for this site.
  • System. Contains the pre-defined templates supplied by Webroot, click one to use it as a starting template.
  • Global. Click to view the email templates that have a global scope.
5. To customize a pre-supplied template, select the System view, click a template to customize it, then click the blue Clone to Site Templates button. To create a new template from scratch, click the blue +New Email Templates button. Either action opens a window containing these customizable options:
  • Template Name. The name of the template.
  • Categories. Optional tag like functionality, a category can be assigned to a template to group it. A template can belong to multiple categories.
  • Type. Drop-down menu that controls the type of email template, options include Lure Page, After Login Page, and Education Page. Select Lure Page for this process.
  • Status. Unpublished or published. An email template has to have a status of published in order for it to be able to be used.
  • Scope. Site or Global. Site to assign only to the site you are managing, global to create the template at the global level.
  • Page Body. The web page contents as they will be displayed. A powerful editor is available to assist with web page modifications.
6. Once the options are configured, click the green Save button.

If the Save button is not present, make sure you have cloned the template to the site and you are not on the System view. Pre-supplied templates cannot be modified.
