The site started as a place for lock owners to store their combinations, so they wouldn’t forget them, but has recently been expanded and updated into the new Master Lock Vault for safe storage of all combinations and passwords that are easy to forget.
The site provides the highest level of website security available today – that 256bit encrypted connection. You know you are on the secured site when you see the green browser bar with the secure padlock icon. This means that the site is secured against unauthorized interception of data, and that all data flowing to and from the site is encrypted, which makes all exchanges between the site and its visitors 100 percent private.
To even obtain this type of protection took an identity and employment check, as well as two phone interviews. This encryption is most common on banking, brokerage and government sites where the privacy and integrity of personal information is very critical.
At current computing speeds, a hacker with the time, tools and motivation to attack a site using brute force would require thousands (if not more) years to break into this type of site. Master Lock is doing everything possible to ensure top-notch security on the Vault site.
In addition, Master Lock has absolutely no access to any information stored in the Vault, and does not share users’ information with anyone, ever.
For additional protection with safeguarding your information, Master Lock encourages you to:
· Never use the same password for multiple accounts
· Never write down your password in a public place, such as in a Rolodex or on a sticky note on your computer monitor
· Never create passwords that are easy to crack, such as
o Default passwords (guest, admin)
o Dictionary words (rabbit, Packers)
o Words with numbers appended (password1)
o Words with simple obfuscation (p@ssw0rd)
o Double words (fishfish)
o Common keyboard sequences (qwerty)
o Common numeric sequences (911)
o Identifiers (555-1234, 01/12/1965)
o Anything personally related to you (license plate number, birthday)
Win: One lucky winner will receive a Master Lock Speed Dial Combination Padlock (random color).
