Drivers for Amazon have started taking pictures of people’s front doors as part of a creepy new delivery service.
The service, which is quietly being rolled out in the UK and US, is designed to help people find packages left by Amazon employees.
But it also raises privacy concerns as many customers may be not be aware that pictures of their home are being stored on company servers.

It follows news that the firm has brought ‘smart doorbell’ company Ring for £700 million ($1 billion) – a company that records footage of people’s front doors.
