You don’t want to leave your valuables unattended in your hotel room given you don’t know who has access while you are out and about.This is where the safe in your hotel room comes into play, right? Wrong.
As it turns out, some hotel safes have a major flaw which would give thieves access to your personal items in a matter of seconds.YouTube channel LockPickingLawyer recently highlighted the flaw, while inside a hotel.After putting in a code and locking the door, the YouTuber showed the safe wouldn’t open when an incorrect pin was entered.
However, he goes on to say the hotel didn’t “reset the administrator password that comes from the factory” and this is where the trouble can be found.By entering “super user mode” and pressing the “factory code” the hotel safe opened right up, without the need for the combination he originally entered.
“If you’re ever in a hotel that has one of these Saflok products and you need to use it to lock up some of valuables, it might be a good idea to make sure the hotel has reset the administrator password before relying on it to protect your goods,” he said.
