Adult Signature Required

Use "Adult Signature Required" to prevent minors from accepting deliveries of goods for legal or other reasons. This may apply to alcoholic beverages and tobacco products, but also to goods that you prefer an adult to receive.

Signature Required

Normally, UPS requires the signature of the receiver for all deliveries. As an exception, deliveries in certain countries are allowed on "Driver release" (delivery in a location in the receiver's premises without the need for a signature) or on "Letter box release". Letter box release is a secured release by a service provider which will allow residential packages to be left in a safe letter box without a signature.

Use Signature Required to prevent the use of "Driver Release" or "Letter Box Release" in applicable countries.
