Risks of exposing PR card info?

I’d like to know if there are any risks of info on the PR card being exposed . Is there any sensitive info on it that could be misused by someone ?
For eg : that distant friend who’s address you gave to IRCC at (soft) landing .

Can probably ask them to forward/keep the letter without opening the envelope? in any case you should give address of someone you trust to a certain extent. it is a sensitive document which can be misused if in wrong hands.

So far I have not heard of any case of PR card being misused. I’m sure it happens, just that I’ve never read/heard of it from anyone so it seems rare. Just ask your friend to send envelope as is. The only people who might open them are customs (rarely), and the assumption is that they’re honest.
