Home safe

The CyberSafe at USPS site has tips to secure your home computer network.

Information security begins at home.

Home computers are widely used to pay bills, transmit income tax forms, view documents and media, and communicate with friends and family over the internet.

To protect your home online access, the CyberSafe at USPS team recommends these tips:

  • Install antivirus protection software on all your personal computers.
  • Use firewall software to protect your internet connection from cyber threats.
  • Don’t open email attachments from unfamiliar sources.
  • Turn off your computer or disconnect from the internet when not in use.
