Patent filers - The Migration Tool


Today is the first day that registered patent filers can start the migration process from using PKI certificates (and Java) to using the new web portal - my.uspto.gov.

Step 1: Log into your my.uspto.gov account.

Go to the account, and make sure that you enable always use two-factor authentication.

Click "Save" at the button of the screen, and then "Log Out".

Step 2: Log into Private Pair.

There you will be greeted by a pop-up message (see first image).

There also is a blue bar at the bottom of the window.

Click on a "Migrate Now" button.

Step 3: A new window opens and displays a message. Click "Continue".

Step 4: A new window opens and displays the following message. Login to your uspto.gov account.

Step 5: After you link your account, click Continue.

Step 6: Confirm account information, and e-sign the form.

Step 7: Await confirmation from the USPTO. This supposedly can take up to 24 hours.

TIP:

1. If you first log into Private PAIR and get then error messages while trying to log into USPTO.GOV, log into USPTO.GOV first (do not log-out) and then log into Private PAIR.
