How To Keep Your Online Purchases From Being Stolen Over The Holidays

So, what can you do to keep your packages from being swiped? Well, there are several steps you can take, and most of them are pretty simple. They include:

  • As long as your boss is okay with it, have packages shipped to you at work so they aren’t left on your doorstep.
  • Find friends or neighbors who are home during the day and ask them if they can receive your packages.
  • Require that any package you send receive a signature so they are not left at the door.
  • Ask the people you are sending packages about the safest way to get things to them.
  • Use alternative pickup or delivery options, which can be found at shippers websites.
  • Get home security devices, which can be clearly seen to deter thieves.
