Safe deposits

USPS encourages employees to be cautious when conducting mobile banking transactions.

One click on an advertisement or a text message is all it takes for a hacker to gain access to your personal bank account.

Hackers use phishing text messages and advertisements often on mobile devices to lure victims into downloading malicious software, also known as malware.

The malware remains inactive until you open a banking app. The software collects the banking information, which hackers will either use or sell.

The CyberSafe at USPS team advises employees to review banking ads and text messages before clicking them or opening attachments. Verify suspicious messages that appear to be from persons you know.

Report phishing emails to the CyberSecurity Operations Center.

The CyberSafe at USPS Blue and LiteBlue sites have additional information.
