Your security responsibilities

As a Site User you agree to the terms of use and security guidelines including but not limited to:

  • You are using your own own e-mail address, given to you by your institution as your username
  • You do not share your username and password with anyone
  • You do not share any of the classified documents, including For Official Use Only documents with anyone or on any website outside of the the IMF Extranet
  • Choose a password with a minimum of fourteen (14) characters, or longer
  • You can not choose any of your previous four (4) passwords when changing passwords.
  • You need at least one (1) day between each Password Reset.
  • Your account will be locked out after three failed logon attempts.
  • We strongly encourage the use of complex passwords (any combination of letters, numbers and special characters, excluding '<' and '>'). Choose a password that you can easily remember and that is also difficult for others to guess. Here are some guidelines for creating complex passwords:
    • Do not use words in a dictionary, unless accompanied by additional unrelated characters
    • Passwords should not be a reflection of a person’s life; for example, license plate numbers and spouses’ names are not suitable as passwords.
    • Combine punctuation, numbers and/or special characters with a regular word.
    • Deliberately misspell a word (but not a common misspelling)
    • Create acronyms from words in a song, a poem or another known sequence of words.
    • Combine a number of personal facts like birth dates and favorite colors.
