We have been alerted to attempts by hackers to target UofT students with fake “Blackboard” prompts, which redirect to a fake Blackboard login page. This could include receiving an email that says you have an important course announcement or assignment due.
The real UofT Blackboard can only be accessed via the UTWeblogin page. Also, always make sure that the URL says portal.utoronto.ca, and not blackboard.edu, or any other URL.
If you think you may have inadvertently typed your UtorID credentials into a fake version of Blackboard, please change your password - If you are unsure of how to do this safely, contact us for assistance.
