Check your APNIC-issued Certificate

How do I know if my Certificate is valid?

At the top right-hand corner of your MyAPNIC screen, you will see a rectangular icon representing your Digital Certificate.

If the gold coloured certificate icon appears on the top, you are accessing MyAPNIC with a valid Digital Certificate.

If there is no certificate icon displayed, then:

  • No Certificate is detected in the browser
  • No Certificate has been issued to the user
  • An incorrect Certificate has been detected in the browser, or
  • The Digital Certificate has expired

How do I renew my Digital Certificate?

Digital Certificates are valid for a term of one year from their date of issue.

30 days before your certificate expiry date:

    • An automated email is sent out prompting you to download a new Digital Certificate
    • The Digital Certificate can be downloaded by logging into MyAPNIC and going to:

My Profile > Digital Certificates > Download certificate
