The Rise of Porch Pirates Porch pirates are adept at identifying vulnerable packages. They often target neighborhoods with high delivery volumes and strike when homeowners are away. The pandemic-induced surge in online shopping has only exacerbated this issue, with an estimated 260 million packages stolen last year.

Community Impact Package theft doesn’t just impact individuals; it strains community trust and places financial burdens on both consumers and online retailers. Communities grapple with eroded social connections and increased mistrust among neighbors.

Prevention Strategies To outsmart porch pirates, consider the following measures:

  • Utilize tracking services for real-time updates.
  • Opt for secure delivery locations like Amazon Locker Boxes.
  • Have packages delivered to your workplace or a neighbor’s home.
  • Choose delivery options that require a signature.
  • Install advanced security systems, like video doorbell cameras.
  • Install a smart garage door opener / smart door lock allowing deliveries to be placed inside.
