I just logged on tonight to check my delivery. And found a photo of my own home. I found this a bit intrusive tbh. Is this normal?

    Yep, many delivery companies take a picture of the parcel placed at your door

    Yes. And I believe it’s in the t&cs. Very common. I mean, you’ve already given them your address to get it delivered. So what’s the issue? It’s just proof to protect you and the courier.

    Op, this practice is normal. Don't fret about it. Anyone can see your front door when walking past or doing a street view online.

    Royal Mail, Evri , dpd, etc. all take photos, some even wait for you to open the door and take a photo of the parcel inside.

    It helps future delivery people find your house easier
    I would prefer this then them sending my items to wrong houses where people steal the items. Then they claim that they didn't get anything

    Exactly this, why knock on the door if you haven't taken one

    Ikea did it with me last week. Took photos of the stuff inside then another photo of my front door open.

    It's a game
    You have to be quick
    Open door, grab parcel, close door, all before they take their photo
