Taking Care of Your Client Certificate

After generating a Client Certificate as the second factor for your authentication process, we recommend that you back it up. Once you've backed up (exported) your Client Certificate, you can do the following things with it, if needed:

  • Import it into other Certificate Stores so that you can use multiple browsers to log into your DigiCert account.

  • Transfer it to another computer should you get a new one. Then, you can install it in the necessary Certificate Stores on your new computer.

The instructions on this page explain how to verify Client Certificate installation, back up/export your Client Certificate, and import your Client Certificate. The instructions are divided into two sections: Windows and Mac.
