Fake Blackboard Prompts

Please share widely

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 UTORWeblogin 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 name and password into a fake version of Blackboard, please contact the Information Commons asap for assistance in resetting your credentials: help.desk@utoronto.ca
