Think illegally sharing passwords is worth the risk?

March 8, 2011  |  by Cassie

After reading Clareity Security’s recent article on password sharing, the answer to whether or not password sharing is worth the risk is clear – $1.1 million clear.

Our MRIS Subscription Agreement, signed by each MRIS customer, states that your password and pin must remain under your control and cannot be shared.  Sharing of login credentials is a breach of the terms governing your subscription, and can result in legal and financial consequences including, but not limited to, fines and revocation of subscriber’s access to MRIS.

MRIS currently monitors our customers login credentials, but very soon, MRIS will begin notifying customers if password sharing has been detected. Should you receive a notification, you will need to follow the steps on the notification to stop the sharing of your login credentials. If the password sharing continues, we will begin issuing fines and even revoking access if the sharing continues.

If you have a personal or administrative assistant, they must also have their own MRIS subscription and receive a separate User ID, PIN and Password for access to the system.  They will be assigned to your account, however they must have their own credentials.  An administrative subscription account allows them to log in using their own ID so that they may do work on your behalf in Matrix (e.g., using the Team feature).  This type of account also allows for access to your listings in Keystone so that they may make updates on your behalf.  Click here for information on joining.

Don’t risk finding out who it really hurts when you share your password or pin because you assuredly will not like the answer.

    I enjoy using other peoples MRIS passwords. The fact the system is not open to the public is just a giant pathetic scan to keep information away from consumers and in the hands of real estate agents. Capitalism doesn't work that way. You shouldn't be hiding details of a product from consumers. That's just another way to wind up back in a housing bubble.
