Four Places You Shouldn’t Leave Your Keys
Despite being one of the most important items you own, keys are also one of the most commonly misplaced items and are often targeted by thieves. The last thing you want is your kes to end up in the wrong hands. Being more mindful of where you keep your keys will not only make them easier to find but will reduce the chances of having them stolen too.
Here are four places where you should never leave your keys.
Near the front door
You may think there is some logic behind leaving your keys near the front door so you know exactly where they are in the morning, but this may not be the best place. If you have a key rack, side table or something similar near your front door, some criminals have been known to spot them through your letterbox and pull them through using a wire hanger! Always keep your keys out of sight.
Under the mat
It used to be very common for people to leave spare keys under a doormat or flowerpot but today that isn’t the safest option. This is one of the first places that criminals will look which means you could be giving them a very easy way into your vehicle or home. Instead, give your spare keys to someone you trust such as a neighbour or family member who lives nearby.
Inside your wallet or purse
It’s surprising how many people store their keys in their purses and wallet. Despite feeling like a safe place, what happens if you lose your wallet or purse with the keys inside? In this case, burglars will have an entire roadmap to your home address and information about your identity when they look at your driving licence, debit cards and more. You should keep your wallet and keys separate to reduce your chances of this happening.
