MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – If you had packages delivered to you by courier — whether it be stuff you ordered from Lazada or Shopee, or food you bought through Grab or Food Panda, you know the delivery personnel ask to take a picture of you as proof of delivery.
Well, that is going to change soon.
After customer complaints that the taking of photos during package delivery is a violation of privacy rights. The law says that you can refuse to have your photo taken.
So, in order to comply with the law, the courier companies have revised their delivery protocol. They will still take your photo, but they will ask you for a wacky pose. That way, your real self won’t be recognizable.
