How to Secure Your Package?

If you’re expecting a package and want to make sure it’s delivered safely and securely, there are some things you can do to make sure your package gets to you without being damaged or stolen.

When you’re shipping something online, it’s important to always check the shipping address before buying or selling anything. This is especially true if you’ve changed your mind about a purchase and want to cancel it at the last minute.

If you change your mind about a purchase or sale, don’t worry! You can always change any of your shipping details by contacting the seller or buyer directly by email (or whatever other method they’ve decided to use).

You can change this if you need to.

You can change this if you need to. If the seller has a different shipping address for your package, it may be because you have not entered one yet. To change your shipping address, follow these steps:

  • Navigate to “Your Account” on Etsy and log in with your username and password.
  • Click on “Account Settings” at the top of the page, then select “Ordering & Shipping” from under Ordering Options in the left-hand column of tabs.
  • Scroll down to Shipping Address and click Edit next to where it says Order Shipped To (your default address). You can also update this information by going into each listing individually and clicking Edit below Ship To Address before ordering something new or adding items from an existing order.

The shipper will help you locate your package with the tracking number.

If you receive a tracking number and don’t know how to use it, you can call the shipper. They will help you locate your package with the tracking number, not the order number.

Sometimes a driver may have placed a notice on your door indicating that they attempted to drop off your package, and where they left it. This is not a guarantee that your package was left. You should check the package and make sure it is what you ordered; if it is not, contact the shipper immediately.

If you have one, unlock any gates to allow delivery access and confirm the shipper has permission to leave packages unattended at your doorstep.

It’s also important to make sure that there is a secure place for your package once it’s delivered. If you are not home, check with neighbors or family members who may be able to accept the package for you. When possible, ask them if they can sign for it as well.

If no one is available and you don’t want a package left on your front porch or doorstep (which could result in theft), let the shipper know ahead of time so that they can either redirect delivery or hold off until another day when someone will be present.

If you’re having packages delivered to you but will be away from home when they arrive, you can authorize a release of your packages without signing for them leaving you more flexibility in receiving and tracking shipments. This is most often done with FedEx, UPS, and other shipping companies.

  • Check the status of your shipment: If the shipper has been notified that someone else has authorized the release receipt, they’ll leave the package at the front door or mailbox (depending on where their drivers usually deliver) so that it’s easily accessible.
  • Change delivery options: You can also change how you want to receive packages by going into account settings online or contacting customer service directly if necessary. There may be an option for customers who want their regular deliveries held until after hours or on weekends; however, this will require some advanced planning on your part as well as coordination with delivery drivers who are not always available outside normal business hours.*

If there are no safe places nearby where packages could be left unattended for any length of time without being potentially stolen; ask if it would be possible for them to hold onto it until later in the day when it would not present any issue.* If neither option is feasible then consider having items shipped somewhere else (like another address) while still retaining control over which parcels go where by authorizing release receipts only when ready.*


Do not sign for anything that looks damaged or does not look like it was supposed to be part of what was ordered.

If you are not able to refuse the package, take photos of it and contact the shipper immediately. If you do not receive a satisfactory response from the shipper or if they claim that everything is fine, contact your local police department.


A package is a common way to describe a shipping container (such as a cardboard box, envelope, or mailing tube) that has been prepared for transport. Packages are used in business and commerce for the purpose of exchanging goods between different locations.

In this article, we will discuss how to secure your package at home, at work, and while traveling.


If you’ve done all of this and still cannot locate your package, contact your local post office or the shipper directly. They can help track down and locate your package so that it reaches its destination without any further delay!
