Online shopping has become the norm with the advent of sites like Amazon and others. Homeowners who enjoy the ease and convenience of shopping from home have to worry about the growing problem of porch pirates. Porch pirates take advantage of online shoppers who have packages left at their doorstep by waiting for a delivery to arrive and then helping themselves to the package.
In this infographic, Eye Trax, a home security service, shares some important data about thieves who are taking items from outside of someones home. It includes who the porch pirates often are, how they operate and what you can do to prevent your packages from being stolen. An exterior home security system can go a long way to help keep your online goods from being plundered.
