Strengthening security with login
The addition of the login requirement is the first phase of strengthening the security of the trademark filing process. Future phases will enhance the security process by being able to verify account holder information and allowing more control and delegation of access to forms.
Changes to your filing workflow
The most noticeable changes to your trademark filing workflow will be:
- Logging in with two-factor authentication before you can access TEAS or TEASi forms.
- The 30-minute timeout after inactivity. You will receive a pop-up warning after 25 minutes of inactivity.
If you manage or use third-party systems that interact with TEAS, you'll likely be impacted by the new TEAS login requirement. If you need additional information as you prepare for this change, please send questions to TEAS@uspto.gov.
Watch the below video, How to prepare for the new TEAS login requirement, for a step-by-step tutorial on creating your USPTO.gov account. In this recorded webinar, you'll also hear useful questions asked by fellow trademark filers and answers from our team.
If you can't use TEAS because you can't access your USPTO.gov account, we have resources to help you. The MyUSPTO and USPTO.gov account frequently asked questions page can help you resolve common issues.
If you need additional technical assistance, contact the Trademark Assistance Center. If you still can't access your account and your filing deadline is today, see our Filing documents during an outage page.
