Protecting LiteBlue

To protect employees and the organization from cybercriminals, the Postal Service will require multifactor authentication (MFA) for access to LiteBlue after Jan. 15.

Multifactor authentication is an identity verification method in which users provide two or more confirmation factors to gain access to an online account. It is frequently used by banks and other institutions dealing with sensitive personal information.

When employees log into LiteBlue, they will be required to set up their MFA preferences. Once the MFA setup is enabled, these ID confirmation factors will be required each time employees log in.

Employees can click on “Multifactor Authentication” on the LiteBlue login page at LiteBlue.usps.gov for more information and to view support materials.
