  1. What is Freddie Mac Access Manager?

    Access Manager is a self-service system that enables Seller/Servicers who have registered and received Freddie Mac's authorization, to create, manage, and provision their users' access to certain Freddie Mac Single-Family sourcing and servicing tools and applications.

  2. Why should I use Access Manager?
    Access Manager simplifies user provisioning, saving clients time and effort. With Access Manager, you can:
    • Create and self-manage users and effectively control their access to our applications.
    • Set users' application access at any time – you used to have to submit an online form that took several days to process. Now, you get your users' ID and password in minutes – saving valuable time.
    • Experience faster turnaround on access requests – from days to minutes.
    • Eliminate paper request forms and receive access in real time − automating the provisioning process also means no more paper forms, helping you make the move to a paperless environment.
    • Improve transparency with on-demand reporting and periodic recertification of users.
    • Lower your risk by occasionally recertifying your user base to facilitate accurate access to all tools.
