USPTO Portable Media Device Policy Changing


Beginning October 1, 2019, the USPTO will prohibit the use of personal removable media storage devices, including USBs, with any USPTO computer, docking station, or monitor.

Such devices include:
- Portable disk drives such as USB drives or memory cards
- Digital versatile discs (DVDs)
- Read/write compact discs (CDs)
- Devices that can operate as removable media storage devices (e.g. PDAs, digital cameras, and Apple iPods).

Visitors who need to share files with USPTO employees must transmit their data via email, cloud-based, or secure-file sharing services.
