    As far as I understand it is because of the increased access to customers personal information in regards to security codes for gates, garages or other places that customers might have us leave their pkgs.

    The PIN numbers are part of the UPS MyChoice service.

    What dilligaf said. The new UPSMyChoice service that started today enables the driver to access information that the customer gives us including gate codes, precise delivery instructions, and electronic signatures. We have to select a pin number every time we clock in on our DIADs. You can use the same code or change it everyday. If you forget the code for the day you get five tries before the DIAD locks you out and you have to call your Center to get it reset.

    I saw it, but am wondering why your quote of him reads differently than his post does now?
    Did he edit it after he saw your response, or was it an embellishment?

    I know nothing. If the brother has a size issue it's not my problem.

    I have attention issues when my package car is sitting behind me full of packages. If I remember correctly it was 54 screens full of imformation before we got to the questions.

    Its a new UPS program. Your suppose to enter your personal debit card info in the "clock in" screen, then leave your debit pin # when prompted.

    and don't even worry... UPS will be very responsible with your money!

    What I find amusing is that I must now enter a PIN to have access to the 50 or 60 gate codes....that I personally spent the last 17 years acquiring from the customers on my route. I already have all of those codes stored in a file on my computer, as well as in my iPhone. About 1/3 of them dont even need to be stored anywhere because I have them memorized by heart. I need another PIN number like I need :censored2: in my head.
