Thinking of installing a fingerprint sensor door lock at your home? Well, you probably don’t want to after this. In a recent video, YouTube channel, LockPickingLawyer, highlighted a shockingly critical vulnerability of standalone fingerprint sensor door lock.
How many times have you look at smart lock, only to turn away by the hassle of installing it? I’ll be honest. I have, like so many times. However, I may not turn away Gimdow – thanks to its promise of “hassle-free” installation.
If you are as paranoid as me about luggage security, you would have a padlock on top of the suitcase’s integrated number lock. But added security is not without its caveat.
