Frequently Asked Questions : Employee Access & Disclosure

Can I let a coworker access a University computer system with my username and password?

Employees are provided a unique username and password for access to University of Miami systems. Access to such systems is governed by the Computer Use and Confidentiality Policy/Agreement and the HIPAA Confidentiality Agreement that employees sign upon joining the medical center. See these agreements and policies at General IT, Business & Regulatory Policies. It is important to remember that you are responsible for any and all actions taken using your username and password. Therefore, you should never share your username and password with anyone. Also, you should not log into a system and allow others to use your access.
