Keep it confidential

Postal Service employees share responsibility for protecting USPS information from theft or misuse.

The CyberSafe at USPS team encourages employees to follow these tips to protect employee and customer information:

  • Store sensitive or sensitive-enhanced information in a secure file cabinet or desk drawer.
  • Before leaving your computer unattended, lock it by pressing the Windows logo and “L” keys simultaneously.
  • Change your Postal Service credentials every 90 days. Be sure it’s easy to remember and conforms to USPS password guidelines.

The CyberSafe at USPS Blue site has more data security and privacy tips.

Employees should refer to Handbook AS-805-C, Information Security Requirements for All Personnel, Section 4, for additional guidance.
