Glitches and Hackers

Glitches and hackers

Limited access capacity, system glitches, and unscrupulous hackers can routinely make Internet activity a challenge. With many possible problems inherent in a digital network, there is one avenue people can always turn to for efficient, reliable service.

Mail is a safe, reliable, and effective means of sending items to another destination. Mail can’t be opened by a hacker in a foreign country or by a domestic member of the computer underground looking for a good time. Items deposited into a mailbox are protected by the Postal Inspection Service, the law enforcement arm of USPS. If anyone tries to tamper with postal equipment or defraud postal customers, the Postal Inspection Service will doggedly pursue those responsible and place them behind bars.

As more information is transmitted electronically from databases throughout the world, personal information will have a greater chance of being intercepted and used for nefarious purposes – many times without the targeted individual knowing about it. Items sent in the mail cannot be intercepted by a clever hacker or crafty password thief. The 500,000 men and women of the Postal Service stand ready to serve the American public, and their dedication to ensuring the safe delivery of precious items around the country is second to none.
