On August 12, 2016, the informational web pages currently found at http://www.uspto.gov will be moved to https://www.uspto.gov. The USPTO has decided to finally use HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure), currently the strongest privacy protection available for public web connections.

Those accessing web pages formerly found at http://www.uspto.gov will automatically be redirected to the pages’ new https location.
