USPS Business Customer Gateway – Password Changes in Q1


The USPS announced on an MTAC User’s Group call that they will be strengthening the password approach to access the Business Customer Gateway in Q1.

New users and those that use the “forgot password” feature will be required to comply upon setup or resetting password.

This also impacts any scripts that auto login to pull data from the Gateway.
