How to login to ACT?

ACT can be accessed from any device with an internet browser (we recommend using Microsoft Edge or Chrome), including desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, and mobile phones.

Do NOT use Internet Explorer. Use Firefox ONLY if you have already configured it for CAC, which requires ActivClient. Visit the ACT login page and enter your AKO or CAC to enter Army Career Tracker. After visiting the login page, your browser may display a security alert. This happens because the Department of Defense does not safeguard its websites with standard SSL certificates. Instead, the Defense Department protects its own websites.
