AN AMA­ZON COURIER CAN WAN­DER INTO YOUR HOME WITH A PAR­CEL BY SCAN­NING ITS BAR­CODE

Stuff (UK) - - HOT STUFF -

an im­por­tant de­liv­ery? Even if the an­swer is once, you’ll no doubt re­call fall­ing to your knees and up­set­ting the dog with an ex­plo­sion of pro­fan­ity.

The ques­tion is, will this con­ve­nience al­le­vi­ate the ob­vi­ous se­cu­rity con­cerns? Our guess is no. Your av­er­age bur­glar isn’t sud­denly go­ing to morph into Mr Ro­bot, but you’re plac­ing a lot of trust in Ama­zon to keep its data­bases pro­tected from pro­fes­sional hack­ers. And what if a courier is in­ter­cepted on ap­proach? Not only will they get your par­cel, but ac­cess to your home too. The re­tail be­he­moth has its work cut out to get con­sumers on board with this one.
