Can I share my account?

From our FAQ: Can I share an account? – Account Security Policies

The sharing of passwords or login credentials is not allowed under RC and Harvard information security policies. Please bear in mind that this policy also protects the end-user.

Sharing credentials removes the ability to audit and accountability for the account holder in case of account misuse. Accounts which are in violation of this policy may be disabled or otherwise limited. Accounts knowingly skirting this policy may be banned.

If you find that you need to share resources among multiple individuals, Faculty can approve accounts for outside collaborators to their lab groups. Otherwise, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you with finding a safe and secure way to do so.
