Logging In and Logging Out

To increase security and reduce risk, Stanford is sunsetting its AFS service for web hosting and file storage. While you can still access AFS using your valid Stanford SUNetID, there are more secure web hosting platforms and document management solutions to which you should transition.

To reduce the use of AFS, UIT has taken these actions:

  • UIT no longer automatically provisions new faculty and staff members with AFS user volumes. New faculty or staff who need a personal user volume must submit a Help request.
    • This change does not impact existing AFS directories or the process for adding permissions for new individuals to those existing directories. Your existing space and everything in it remains intact.
    • This change does not impact auto-provisioning of new AFS user volumes for students and postdocs.

    See New Process for Provisioning AFS User Volumes for more information.

  • All user, dept, and group AFS volumes must be renewed annually or they will be locked, archived, and permanently deleted as detailed in the AFS Volume Expiration Policy.

Log In to WebAFS

  1. Type the following URL in the Address bar of your web browser: http://afs.stanford.edu.
  2. Your AFS home directory will be displayed.

Log Out of WebAFS

If you access WebAFS from a public computer, your AFS account may still be accessible by others if you do not completely log out when you are done.

The safest way to ensure you are logged out is to quit the web browser when you are finished using WebAFS. However, sometimes you may want to log out of WebAFS but continue using the browser.

  1. To log out of WebAFS, click Logout in the upper-right corner of the screen.
  2. Click Stanford Home Page.
