NetBadge at UVa
About the NetBadge Service
What Is NetBadge?
When a website, service, or application at the University of Virginia needs to know your identity, it automatically redirects you to authenticate via NetBadge first, before granting you access. NetBadge protects many websites and resources at UVa.
- using your personal digital certificate (a faster and more secure login method);
- or using your UVa computing ID and password on a compatible system.
If, after logging into “regular” NetBadge, you are presented with an additional NetBadge login screen, then you are attempting to access a website or resource which is protected by Enhanced NetBadge.
- Check Tools for Enhanced NetBadge to confirm that you are able to log into websites protected by Enhanced NetBadge;
- or see how to provide additional info to log into Enhanced NetBadge.
Important NetBadge Security Reminders
Don’t Fall for Scams!
Remember, always verify that you are on the real UVa NetBadge page first!
In NetBadge scams, cybercriminals try to trick you into revealing your UVa password by presenting a fake, lookalike NetBadge page. Double-check the URL; it should match this URL exactly: https://netbadge.virginia.edu. That is the only URL you should trust.
You can protect yourself from such scams by logging into NetBadge using your personal digital certificate whenever possible.
