Gophish is an open-source phishing toolkit designed for businesses and penetration testers. It provides the ability to quickly and easily setup and execute phishing engagements and security awareness training.


Installation of Gophish is dead-simple – just download and extract the zip containing the release for your system, and run the binary. Gophish has binary releases for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms.

Building From Source

If you are building from source, please note that Gophish requires Go v1.10 or above!

To build Gophish from source, simply run go install and cd into the project source directory. Then, run go build. After this, you should have a binary called gophish in the current directory.


You can also use Gophish via the official Docker container here.


After running the Gophish binary, open an Internet browser to https://localhost:3333 and login with the default username and password listed in the log output. e.g.

time=”2020-07-29T01:24:08Z” level=info msg=”Please login with the username admin and the password 4304d5255378177d”

Releases of Gophish prior to v0.10.1 have a default username of admin and password of gophish.
