MyUSPTO.gov timeout

The time out needs to be increased significantly. Signing in with PKI certificates was 55 minutes, but signing in with myuspto.gov is too short of a time period until timing out (and no time out notice appears in the system tray). Please fix this! It is frustrating to have to re-sign in multiple times a day (AND select traffic lights, store fronts, etc.)

Please remove "two factor" authentication for known devices

If a user signs in to the EBS website with a known device (often also with an IP address known to the system), the system automatically has at least two-factor authentication. Such logons are "well-known to those skilled in the art of website-making" and are common in banking and other security websites.

Remove the "capcha" puzzles for Public Pair accessed from EBC

Please remove the "capcha" puzzles for people signed on to EBS when accessing Public PAIR. With access to public applications not associated with the user's customer number removed in Private PAIR, it is apparently necessary to go through repeated "capcha" puzzles until one gets it right by "properly" identifying the partial blocks with crosswalks or where people had been walking their dogs or whatever the current puzzle... more »

API or Automated Access - Disable Re-Captcha

myUSPTO has re-captcha enabled on all logins which prevents bot/automated access. this was not the case for private pair. We had tools which would automate the login process and download XML files daily to help our firm. Now that private pair is moving to myUSPTO these tools will no longer work. Is there any planned release for an API to private pair data? Or is there a way to disable 'recaptcha' for my account? Why would... more »

Size of password

Don't require so many extra security features in password. 12-character size is too long. Need for both number and special character is too much.

It would be nice to be able to print a list of the trademarks in the collections and it would also be nice to see if you have the same trademark in more than one collection

Simplified web site for experienced users

The USPTO website is good but it includes lots of explanations. These are necessary for those who are not well versed in the site but it slows down experienced users. It would be most helpful if there could be a slimmed down version without all the explanations for experienced users. A good place to access this might be the new console.
