If you have not received your SMI password from DHS, here is a temporary work around that will allow most of you to access ECF with limited functionality. Users can bypass SMI by logging into SMI Down Mode. In this mode, you will be able to view documents in person and case folders. A tutorial is attached on how to sign into SMI Down Mode and search for cases/persons while working in SMI Down Mode. If you currently have access to ECF in its full capacity (able to log into both sign in screens) please disregard this tutorial. Learn more with this tutorial (PDF).
