Amazon is now delivering packages to the trunk of your auto

To open the trunk, the delivery driver, upon arrival, will notify the Amazon app.

Rather than use smart locks and a cloud-connected camera to gain entry, Amazon wants to use the connected technologies embedded in many modern vehicles today.

Amazon has employed multiple levels of verification to ensure security with regard to in-car deliveries. "After it has been delivered, you get a final notification".

The new in-car delivery service, which will be available in 37 United States cities and surrounding areas, is a variation of Amazon Key.

"We have said we are excited to roll out promotions associated with our Whole Foods acquisition, and we will continue to launch into new cities", Patel said. But the Internet is having a hard time with in-car delivery so far. These systems provide remote access to vehicles, which makes Key In-Car possible.

Still, the service will require a hefty amount of trust that a courier won't swipe any valuables.

The Amazon Key App now lets customers with the appropriate vehicles check to see whether they've parked within range of the delivery location. "This product may not be for everyone". The program has received mixed reviews, with some touting it as a solution to package thefts from porches and others seeing it as an invasion of privacy.

Online retailer Amazon announced Tuesday it's now ready to deliver customer packages directly to - and inside of - their vehicles. "This goes back to one-click ordering", he said.

"You have to be pretty desperate to hand over your auto keys just to get a few hours quicker delivery", wrote another Twitter poster.

Another customer said it helped him keep personal and business orders separate by giving him another delivery site.

"In-car delivery gives customers that same peace of mind and allows them to take the Amazon experience with them", Larsen added. More cities and more vehicle makes and models will be added over time, Amazon said.

Amazon's popping up everywhere, even in the back seat of your auto. And like with in-home delivery, shoppers may be concerned about letting a stranger into their vehicle.

If Amazon won't sell gun-shaped phone cases because some Democratic politicians refer to them as "ticking time bombs", one would think they'd stop potentially abetting actual crimes. "What kind of vehicle do you drive?"

"The new season of "Dateline" is brought to you by Amazon Key - bringing stalkers and victims together in a hip new way", wrote another Twitter poster.

There's no extra charge for the Amazon Key in-car delivery service, as long as you have a compatible auto and are an Amazon Prime member.
