USPS tracking is available for various mail classes, including First-Class Mail and Priority Mail, and provides detailed updates throughout the delivery process. Whereas Certified Mail is a specific service that offers proof of mailing and proof of delivery. It requires a signature upon delivery and serves as an added layer of security and accountability.
