With more and more people ordering online, more and more packages are being delivered. Unfortunately, that also means more packages are being stolen. You can protect yourself from porch pirating and other forms of mail theft by making use of the following tracking services that provide you text and/or email updates on delivery status, and provides you with options to reroute or hold your packages:
USPS Informed Delivery
If your order is being sent via USPS shipping methods, it is recommended that USPS Informed Delivery be used. Informed Delivery is a free notification system that will email images of physical letter-sized mail and allow users to manage and track their larger packages before arrival. More information can be found at the official USPS website here.

Fedex Delivery Manager
You will be able to redirect your delivery to an FedEx Office, Walgreens, and select Dollar General locations. Fedex will hold you package for up to 7 days in one of their locations. You can give specific instructions for incoming deliveries to your driver. Tracking notifications, the ability to check the status of deliveries and alerts to shipping exceptions or delays are also available with Fedex Delivery Manager. More information can be found at the official FedEx website here.
Whichever tracking service you are using to track your package, it is important to track the item along its entire journey. In the event that your tracking information indicates that a package has been delivered, but you have not received the package, contact your shipping service as soon as possible.
