Follow along as we guide you through this simple process – unlock the key to online security today!

Creating a Strong Password

You can reset your LiteBlue password in two different ways. The first method is by going to the LiteBlue login website and following the instructions to receive a confirmation link. The second option is using the temporary password provided in April 2014 via letter, which will require you to access the SSP website and enter your employee identification number (EIN) and temporary password found in the upper right corner of the letter. Both methods are secure and easy to use, so you can choose whichever one works best for you.

Method 1: LiteBlue Website

To reset your password for the LiteBlue website, go to and tap ‘Forgot your password?’. Follow the instructions on the screen to create a secure new password:

  • Must have at least one character from each of four types: numbers 0-9, lowercase letters a-z, uppercase letters A-Z, and special characters like @ ! $ % ^ * _ + ~
  • Must be between 8 to 16 characters in length
  • Receive a confirmation link via email within 72 hours
  • Click on the confirmation link to complete the new password setting. Password security measures are important for protecting sensitive data, so it is best practice to create strong passwords that follow these guidelines.

Method 2: LiteBlue Portal

If you received a letter with a temporary password, reset it to a permanent one by logging in to the SSP website and entering your employee identification number (EIN) and the temporary password. Entering the EIN allows for verification of identity while setting up security questions provides an added layer of account recovery. The temporary password found in the upper right corner of the letter must be changed before accessing any USPS HR self-service applications. To complete the process, click on the ‘Next’ and ‘Submit’ buttons on the page, then confirm your email address if prompted. Once done, manage your new password or log out from the SSP home page as needed.

Creating SSP Profile and Configuring Your SSP Profile

In order to create a new password, you must successfully configure your SSP Profile and log in with your EIN and password. It is important to remember the importance of password security when creating an account. Securing your account with a strong password ensures that only authorized personnel can access it. Creating a SSP profile also provides benefits such as easy access to USPS HR self-service applications, managing passwords and PINs, and asking questions for account recovery. Here are the steps you should follow for efficiently configuring your SSP Profile:

– Click on the ‘Enter SSP’ button on the SSP website login window
– Enter your EIN and temporary password
– Change the temporary password to a new permanent one
– Select two security questions and provide answers for account recovery
– Optional: Enter a valid email address for future communication

Following these steps will ensure that you have created a secure profile that allows you to access all of USPS’s self-service online applications quickly and easily. Additionally, by setting up two security questions with answers, it will be much easier for you in case you ever need to recover your account if something were to happen. Finally, entering an email address is optional but recommended in order to receive notifications from USPS about any changes or updates related to their services.


Having a secure password is essential to protect your data and online identity. By following the steps outlined here, you can create a strong password and configure your SSP profile in no time. Just remember that passwords need to be long, unique, and contain characters from different types for maximum security. As an example of what can happen when you don’t take security seriously, consider the story of someone who used their pet’s name as their password; unfortunately, their pet’s name was easily guessed by a hacker who then gained access to all their accounts! So make sure your passwords are secure and keep your data safe!
