Whether for access to emergency, financial or education public services, users need to trust they are engaging with official U.S. government digital accounts.
To help prevent exploitation from unofficial sources, phishing scams, or malicious entities, the U.S. Digital Registry serves as a crowdsource resource for agencies, citizens, and developers to confirm the official status of social media and public-facing collaboration accounts, mobile apps, and mobile websites. The accounts in the registry are independently updated by federal managers across the government who maintain individual agency accounts.
Accessing the U.S. Digital Registry requires an OMB Max ID, which is available to federal government employees and contractors with a valid .gov, .mil, or .fed.us email address. Register for an OMB Max ID if you need one.

You can register accounts managed by federal agencies, heads of agencies or members of the President’s Cabinet. Do not enter personal, employee, or other types of accounts.
