Problems accessing University applications

Youare sure you have remembered your credentials (username and password) correctly but you can't access the application.

If youare sure you have remembered your credentials correctly but can't gain access, it may be that your Web browser is automatically using previously saved username and password data for authentication.

To resolve the problem you can try using  private browsing mode (also known as anonymous or incognito). 

Private browsing is a function that all the main Web browsers have and it allows you to browse:

  • without saving any information on your computer (or smartphone/tablet) about the sites you visit (chronology), the data you enter in forms, cookies, etc.
  • without referring to your previous browsing history in current browsing.

How to open a private browsing window in your Web browser:

         - Microsoft Internet Explorer
         - Microsoft Edge
         - Google Chrome
         - Mozilla Firefox
         - Apple Safari

If you can gain access normally after opening a private browsing window, this means that there are some settings saved on your browser that are preventing you from logging into the application correctly. 

You can then decide to either:

  • keep on accessing the application using private browsing mode, which ignores the saved settings, or
  • remove the saved settings, i.e. passwords and cookies, following the instructions on your Web browser support pages:

         - Microsoft Internet Explorer
         - Microsoft Edge
         - Google Chrome
         - Mozilla Firefox
         - Apple Safari

If you still can't access the application we suggest trying to gain authentication to another University of Bologna service such as www.dsa.unibo.it to make sure that your credentials are correct.
