Ever wonder what would happen if you forgot the code you set to the hotel safe? Well, most hotels either have a master code or a key for when that happens. The problem, though, is that most hotel employees have access to the code/key and can easily gain entry to your hotel room. And as explained in the short video below (from LockPickingLawyer), the default override code is often not changed by the hotel. If that worries you (and that would be understandable), before placing your valuables in a hotel safe, you should test it out first. Create a password, lock it and then try 999999 (at least on Saflok safes, which are common) to see if it opens. If it does, you probably don’t want to use it.
