Your Hotel Safe Isn't Safe
Do you use your hotel safe to store things when traveling? You might want to rethink that. Watch the video above, via Reddit.
That safe opens with the passcode the hotel gives you, and also with a string of zeroes -- the default code. If you don't know, potential thieves, now you know. It is pretty scary to think that the hotel safe is where people leave things like their passports, their jewelry, etc., and here it is, waiting to be opened by anyone who has watched that video. Although you shouldn't bring your jewelry around with you while traveling anyway. Are you trying to get robbed?
