What is UVA NetBadge?

NetBadge is the gatekeeper between users and websites, services, or applications at UVA that need to know and verify user identity before granting access. NetBadge is not an ITS computing account.

It is an electronic identification “badge” issued to your Web browser when you log into UVA’s NetBadge service. NetBadge protects many UVA websites and resources, so whenever you visit one of these websites, your browser automatically presents your NetBadge to verify your identity as authorized for the protected UVA website.

How to log into Netbadge

You may log in to NetBadge using either the personal digital certificate login option (a faster, more secure method) or by typing in your UVA computing ID and password.

To use your digital certificate, click the first login button on the NetBadge login screen. Otherwise, type your UVA computing ID and password in the labeled boxes on the NetBadge login screen (Forgot your password? Reset it.) Use the Login button and not the Enter key after your password to log in.

How to Log Out of NetBadge

To prevent others from accessing your personal information and from visiting websites using your UVA NetBadge as if they were you, always fully log out of NetBadge when you are finished. To fully log out:

  1. Log out of the NetBadge-protected website(s) you were using.
  2. Then completely exit or quit your Web browser.
