Purchasing an electronic safe is a smart idea, protecting your valuables and important papers against theft by intruders.

For optimal protection, change your password every month or two to keep thieves guessing.

  1. 1

    Read your owner's manual to determine the default code for a password change. For example, on LaGard LG Basic digital locks, enter "0" six times to begin the password change process.

  2. 2

    Input your current password to let the safe know that you are authorised to change the password.

  3. 3

    Type in the new password you wish to use. Typically, you will have to repeat this twice and the passwords must match, preventing you from accidentally making a mistake that will lock you out of your electronic safe.

  4. 4

    Test your new combination before sealing the safe door, ensuring that it works before you lock your belongings in.

Tips and warnings

  • Remember to use random passwords. Never use passwords that can be easily guessed, such as your birthday, wedding anniversary and the like.
