My chair in the family room is theoretically visible through the windows bracketing the front door, so hiding isn’t a good option (not that I haven’t gotten away with it because some visitors couldn’t bring themselves to look).
As for delivery people, we have an advantage: our front porch isn’t visible from the road so porch pirates don’t take the risk. There are plenty of other houses around where they can see if there’s loot to steal without driving so far onto private property.
