Sending Emails with Safe Links 

What are safe links? 

When sending emails, Microsoft Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Safe Links are a feature that help to protect against malicious links commonly used in phishing attacks. When ATP safe links are enabled, after clicking on the link it will check your organization’s blocked URL list and confirm the link is not malicious.

Although the link will show as the basic URL within the email, it will contain the full safe link. Users can see that the safe link check is being made when opening the link. It will show the safe link URL first in the browser search bar before loading the page.
