Want to stay safe online? Go green!

When you visit a Dartmouth website that requires your Dartmouth username and password, you should look for a GREEN URL. If it’s NOT Dartmouth green, don’t proceed.

Any Dartmouth website that requests login info should have the GREEN bar. This  includes sites protected by WebAuth ( such as Banner, Canvas, Kronos, and Library Services) and Blitz Web, Calendar, and OneDrive.

We’ve recently added these green extended digital certificates to our websites to help you avoid being phished.
