Keeping your username and password safe

When you register to use Online Services, you will create your own username and password, which you will use to log in. You should not share your log in details with others.
To protect your information from other people:

  • You should keep your password secret and it is best not to write it down. If you must write it down, keep a reminder of the password, not the password itself. This should be kept in a secure place.
  • If you think someone has seen your password, you should change it as soon as possible. You may want to call the surgery if you are not able to change it right away, for example, when you do not have access to the internet.
  • You should not share your user name or password. No one should force you to show them your log in details, you have the right to say no. If someone forces you, tell the surgery as soon as possible.
 

Using a shared computer

You need to take extra care when using a shared computer to look at your records online. This could be at the library, at work, at university or at home. To protect your personal information from others  when using a shared computer. You should:

  • Look around to see if other people can see what is on the computer screen. Remember, your records contain your personal information.Look around
  • Keep your username and password secret. Just like your bank account PIN you would not want others to know how to get into your records.
  • Make sure you log out when you finish looking at your records so that no one else can see your personal information or change your password without your knowledge.
 

Incorrect information in your records

On rare occasions information in your records might be incorrect.
