The Postal Service is reminding employees and contractors not to share passwords for USPS accounts with co-workers.
When an employee or contractor shares a password, they:
• Don’t have any control over how the person uses the shared password or what they will do with the information;
• Can’t control who else might gain access to their password; and
• Potentially expose their account to online criminals.
If there is an extenuating circumstance where a Postal Service password must be shared, consult with a manager first.
Additionally, if someone in authority requests your password, check with your immediate manager prior to sharing the information.
As the holders of USPS information, employees and contractors have a responsibility to protect the data entrusted to them.
If you believe your password has been released or compromised, change it immediately and report the incident to CyberSafe@usps.gov.
