7.2 Managing Rights on a Shared Computer

Each Oracle IRM Desktop user should log on to the computer using their own Microsoft Windows account.

If you are using a computer that is shared with others:

  • before use, switch the Microsoft Windows account to your own, or log off and log on again as yourself

  • after use, log off of your Microsoft Windows account before allowing anyone else to use the computer

If multiple Oracle IRM Desktop users obtain rights for content while logged on to a single Microsoft Windows account, the rights become merged, and anyone logged on to that account will have access to all users' content. If it is absolutely unavoidable for users to share a Microsoft Windows account, each user must check in their rights manually before allowing someone else to use the computer. See Section 7.5, "Checking In Your Rights Manually".
