Ornithology Exchange (brought to you by the Ornithological Council)

Changes coming to USFWS ePermits login

Recommended Posts

This news and analysis are provided by the Ornithological Council, a consortium supported by 10 ornithological societies. Join or renew your membership in your ornithological society if you value the services these societies provide to you, including OrnithologyExchange and the Ornithological Council.

Registered users of USFWS's ePermits system should have received an email letting them know that over the summer, the way they login to the ePermits system will change. All ePermits users will be required to set up a login.gov account.  There's nothing you need to do now (although you can go ahead and set up your login.gov account if you'd like). More info will be coming from USFWS, and we will keep you informed here as the process moves forward. 

As always, members of all OC societies should feel free to contact the OC with permitting questions or problems. We're here to help!


Notice from USFWS:

Early this summer, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will launch a new, simplified login for ePermits through a partnership with Login.gov, an official service of the U.S. Federal Government. As a result of this change, all ePermits users must have an account with Login.gov using the same email address as your ePermits account.

We are making this change to improve your ePermits experience. Login.gov offers simplified password requirements and additional authentication options, such as receiving your code via text message or phone call.

For those interested in getting started with their Login.gov account, visit the following link for additional instructions. Please note that both the ePermits and Login.gov accounts will not be synced until the official launch. If you already have a Login.gov account using the same email address as your ePermits account, no further action is needed. We will post specific details about this change on the ePermits homepage in the coming weeks.
