EDINA has identified a number of cases where one user has inadvertently registered with Digimap using another individual’s login details. We believe that this may have occurred because the first user has finished using a public access machine but has left their web browser open. This means that the browser is still logged in to the UK Federation with that user’s login credentials.
In order to log out of the UK Federation it is necessary to close ALL web browser windows. This is particularly important if the user is not required to log out of the machine they are using.
Site representatives and local support staff may wish to remind their local users of any local protocols for logging out of electronic systems.
