Where do I enter my USPS validation code?

Answered by Willie Powers

To enter your USPS validation code and restore your Informed Delivery® access, follow these steps:

1. Visit the USPS website: Open your web browser and go to the official website of the United States Postal Service (USPS) at www.usps.com.

2. Sign in to your USPS account: Locate the “Sign In” button on the top right corner of the USPS homepage and click on it. Enter your username and password in the provided fields, then click “Sign In” to access your account.

3. Access your profile settings: Once you are signed in, navigate to your account settings or profile settings. This can usually be found in the top right corner of the website, represented by your username or by clicking on a drop-down menu.

4. Locate the Informed Delivery® section: In your account settings, look for the section related to Informed Delivery®. This section may be labeled differently depending on the website layout, but it generally contains options related to managing and accessing your Informed Delivery® features.

5. Enter the validation code: Within the Informed Delivery® section, you should find an option to enter your validation code. Click on this option to proceed.

6. Input the alphanumeric code: Enter the validation code you received in your USPS letter into the designated field on the website. Make sure to type it accurately, as the code is case-sensitive.

7. Verify your code: After entering the code, the website may prompt you to verify its accuracy. Double-check the code you entered matches the one provided in your USPS letter.

8. Submit and confirm: Once you have entered and verified your validation code, click on the submit or confirm button to complete the process. The website will then validate your code and restore your Informed Delivery® access if the code is valid.

9. Enjoy your Informed Delivery® features: After successfully submitting and confirming your validation code, you should regain access to your Informed Delivery® features. This service allows you to preview your incoming mail and packages, track deliveries, and manage your USPS notifications.

Remember, the availability of Informed Delivery® features may vary depending on the address where you reside. If you have any issues or questions during the process, you can contact USPS customer support for further assistance.

Personal Experience: I recently had to enter a USPS validation code to restore my Informed Delivery® access. I found the process relatively straightforward by following the steps outlined above. The USPS website’s user-friendly interface made it easy to navigate to the necessary settings and enter the code. After submitting and confirming the code, I was able to enjoy the convenience of Informed Delivery® once again.
