Master Lock Kicks Off National Safety Month With Summer Safety Solutions

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2016) - North Americans claim their No.1 safety concern is while traveling (69 percent)*. With the start of summer and families more likely to spend additional time traveling and away from their homes, Master Lock -- a leading manufacturer of innovative safety and security solutions -- is providing consumers with general safety precautions to keep families -- and their possessions -- protected all summer-long. "June is National Safety Month and with schools out for the summer, it's the start of peak vacation season," said Rebecca Smith vice president, marketing for Master Lock. "Given this, safety should be top-of-mind but with North Americans' busy schedules it's easy to forget -- and implement -- best practices when it comes to security. Our goal is to offer simple security solutions to help North Americans feel safe and protected at home and while traveling." Master Lock provides five security tips for families to implement this summer:

Prepare for the Unexpected - With summer camps, vacations and outdoor play dates, accidents are bound to happen. Technology today makes it easier than ever to ensure you're never waiting in line at an urgent care clinic without your child's insurance information. Store digital copies of your family's important medical and identification information in the free and secure Master Lock Vault for easy access from your smartphone on the go. In addition to providing online storage for critical, sensitive documents, the app offers password and lock combination storage at a 256-bit SSL encrypted connection -- the highest grade browser security available -- providing peace of mind against cyber security threats.



Keep Vehicles Protected - Summer is the perfect time of year to explore the outdoors with camp-outs, hikes, road-trips and more. If these explorations involve towing a RV or trailer, make sure to add an extra layer of security with the Master Lock 1469DAT Heavy Duty Receiver Lock, which resists picking and prying to avoid possible theft. Also, if your adventures include a bike ride, make sure to secure your bikes in-between your excursions with the Master Lock 8195D Bike Lock.



Designate a Family Meeting Spot - With summer festivals, fairs and trips to unfamiliar places, it's important to designate a meeting spot whenever you're away from home in case anyone gets lost. Whether you are at a carnival, park or away on vacation, always come up with a plan of where to meet. This will give you peace of mind in case someone in your family is separated from the group.



Secure Vacation Home Keys - The vacation home rental market thrives in the summer. Whether you are vacationing in a rental or plan to have tenants in your rental unit, it's important to implement best safety practices in your "home away from home." While enjoying time away from your vacation hotel room or rental unit, keep your room key on you at all times. For people renting out their vacation properties or for local real estate agents, ensure the rental keys are securely stored by utilizing a lock box, such as the Master Lock 5422D Portable Key Safe. Users can opt to personalize their lock box with the Master Lock 5422LZ Push Button Portable Lock Box; Personalized Laser Engraved, which can be customized with contact information or a company logo.



Protect Valuables and Important Documents - It's important to protect your most valuable documents and keepsakes on a regular basis -- especially when you are away from your home. The compact and versatile SentrySafe 1200 Privacy Lock Chest helps keep your family's most important documents, media and valuables protected, offering peace of mind knowing these items are locked and secure. The SentrySafe 1200 Privacy Lock Chest is a fire-protected** safe and the perfect place to keep birth certificates, passports, social security cards and other items that are irreplaceable.

Master Lock Provides North American Movers Security Solutions to Avoid Relocation Pitfalls

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - One in nine* people change residences each year. North Americans relocate primarily because of a new job or job transfer, a need for a new rental unit or a desire to move from the city to the suburbs*. Just in time for National Moving Month, Master Lock is providing consumers with useful security precautions -- before, during and after moving and settling into a new residence. "For those about to begin life's next big chapter with a move, it may seem like there are a million items on your to-do list," said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. "However, often times basic safety measures are overlooked and items get misplaced, stolen or lost during a move. At Master Lock our goal is to provide valuable security solutions during life's important milestones, including moving into a new home." Master Lock provides five safety measures for North Americans as they move and adjust to their new residence:

Replace Exterior Locks: With real estate agents, home buyers or renters, cleaners and construction crews in and out of homes before they are listed for rent or sell, several keys could be handed out and not returned. As a safety precaution, once you purchase or rent a new home, replace all the exterior locks. Installing new exterior locks, such as the Master Lock BCC0615 Door Lock ensures that as the new tenant or owner, you control how many keys exist.
Consider Moving Insurance: If you're hiring a moving company or have valuable items you're worried might be damaged during the move, consider purchasing moving insurance. Not only will insurance provide financial relief in case anything is mishandled, but it will give you peace of mind and help reduce the stress of moving.
Unpack and Secure Outdoor Equipment: Unfortunately, when you move you aren't only unpacking boxes inside the home, but you also have to find a place to store your outdoor equipment. If you are using an outdoor shed to store bikes, a lawn mower, outdoor and gardening supplies remember to add a lock to your shed. With Master Lock's Bluetooth Padlocks, you don't have to worry about losing a key or forgetting a combination. Recently recognized for its innovative design with a silver Edison award,** the product turns your smartphone or any Bluetooth-enabled device into a key. With models suitable for outdoor and indoor use, the 4400D indoor padlock and 4401DLH outdoor padlock offer various applications to help keep your possessions protected.
Protect Your Valuables: Whether you hire movers or enlist others to help you move, these people now have access to confidential paperwork and important documents like passports, birth certificates, social security cards and more. It's important to keep these items locked in a safe during and after the move. Investing in a smaller safe that's easier to transport such as the Sentry Safe H0100 Small Privacy Lock Chest will help ensure that your most important valuables and documents are protected as you settle into your new home.
Discover Your New Area: Moving can be stressful, but an exciting part of the process is exploring your new community. Take a walk or a bike ride to familiarize yourself with the area and introduce yourself to your neighbors. The fresh air and exercise will give you a much needed break from unpacking boxes and also help with your stress and energy levels. If you stop for a smoothie or a cup of coffee, don't forget to use a Master Lock 8300D Bike Lock to secure your ride.

The Master Lock Company Locks Down Cyber Security With Tips and Services to Help Prevent Personal Data Breaches

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - May 20, 2016) - With cyber security and online breaches being a frequent topic in the news, Master Lock, a leader in safety and security, wants to remind people of the importance of protecting online accounts by changing passwords often and storing them in a secure location. "There are a number of steps you can take to help ensure your passwords and accounts are safe," said Rebecca Smith, vice president for Master Lock. "The most basic is to use complex passwords and change them often. Another is to utilize online tools such as The Master Lock Vault which helps users safely store and organize passwords for easy access anytime, anywhere." According to Smith, Master Lock's Vault is a trusted mobile app and website for password and lock combination storage along with a wide range of options to store personal information, critical documents and more. The Master Lock Vault provides a 256-bit SSL encrypted connection -- the highest grade browser security available -- for safe storage of users' security-sensitive information. The Master Lock Vault also employs strong device and authentication controls as well as redundant firewall protection and intrusion detection monitoring 24/7. Users simply set up an account and then can review, add, change and delete stored information quickly, easily and safely from any computer, smart phone or tablet. The company also offers these five easy reminders to help protect Americans online. 1. Create secure, complex passwords. There are many ways for hackers to steal information, one of which is a compromised password. Protect your accounts by using a password with a combination of numbers, symbols and upper and lowercase letters. Take your password to the next level by adding to its length. A password that is at least eight characters long is estimated to take one year to crack. Learn more about creating secure passwords and what to avoid here: https://www.masterlockvault.com/how-to-create-a-secure-password. 2. Change passwords often. Passwords are recommended to be changed at least every six months. If your existing password has been compromised anyone can access your account. You should immediately change the password for that account and any additional accounts that use the same password. Changing your password frequently minimizes the opportunity for anyone who is trying to hack your account.  3. Use multiple, unique passwords. Using the same passwords to protect all your online accounts is like using the same key for your home, car and office. If someone was to gain access to one, your other assets also become compromised. The same idea is true with your online accounts. 4. Keep passwords secret. A sticky note on your monitor, a page in a note pad or a Word document is not a safe place to store passwords. You can take advantage of the "Save Passwords" feature in the Master Lock Vault, which provides secure storage to safely keep all of your usernames and passwords in one place whether you use them every day, once a month or once a year. Gaining access to your passwords in the Master Lock Vault is easy too -- you can access your personal account anytime, anywhere by logging on at www.MasterLockVault.com or through the app available on a variety of smart phone and tablet devices. 5. Use two-tier authentication.  User authentication, also known as two-tier or device authentication, should always be enabled if offered by sites that collect your secure or private data at registration. With this enabled, you should receive an email or text message during registration with a verification code to complete your account set-up. While this may seem inconvenient at the time of sign-up, the extra protection is well worth this extra step.  The Master Lock Vault provides all the tools needed to keep online accounts and information secure. Trying to remember a strong password such as, "E;:73*lv47 ga0" for each online account is difficult, but with the Master Lock Vault, accessing these are easy, convenient, and secure. You can sign up for a free Master Lock Vault account by visiting: https://www.masterlockvault.com/Registration/Email About Master Lock

Master Lock Offers Security Solutions for Senior Citizens

MILWAUKEE, WI--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2016) - Senior citizens represent the largest growing population in North America but according to the FBI, they can also be the most susceptible to crime, including home invasion, scams, identity fraud and more. Leading into Older Americans month in May, Master Lock is offering senior citizens security tips to help keep them protected, safe and secure. "At Master Lock, our goal is to develop products and provide security resources for North Americans throughout various seasons and life stages," said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. "We are addressing the most common safety concerns senior citizens face and providing solutions for everything worth protecting in these different settings -- at home -- whether in a house or a group home environment, on the road and while traveling." 1. Protect the Home from Intruders - Burglars can view senior citizens' homes as an easy target. Simple security measures can help protect senior citizens against home invasion. Master Lock 265DCCSEN Security Door Bar provides an additional layer of security to homes by affixing to sliding glass and patio doors. Additionally, when traveling, enlist a trusted friend or family member to pick up the mail and newspapers to avoid showing signs of an empty house. Store a spare house key in a trusted key safe, such as the Master Lock 5422D Push Button Portable Key Safe to provide to your designated house sitter. Also, take extra precautions such as installing a home alarm system to deter intruders and break-ins. 2. Secure Personal Belongings in a Nursing Home Setting - Senior citizens that are no longer living on their own and live in group home environments face a unique set of security concerns. With several caregivers, cleaners, and residents in and out of a nursing home resident's living quarters, it's important to keep valuables protected. Store important items and documents in an easy-to-use, locked safe. Small items, such as credit cards, jewelry or cash, fit in the portable Master Lock 5900D SafeSpace Portable Personal Safe while larger items, like documents or memorabilia, can be stored in a larger safe, such as the SentrySafe Extra Large Combination Fire Safe (SFW123DTB) 3. Stay Safe While on the Road - With advanced age can come vision impairments and other issues that can impact senior citizens' ability to drive. Given this, senior citizens must visit the DMV more frequently for license renewal to ensure they are safe on the road. Senior citizens can ease their driving experience by avoiding driving at night and in bad weather, planning the safest and easiest route and limiting distractions such as a loud radio, talking on a cell phone, texting and eating. 4. Protect Personal Assets from Scams - Be overly cautious with telemarketers or outside salespeople, who tend to prey on seniors. Be careful in these situation and properly research the company if they are seeking some form of payment. The police or Better Business Bureau can be good resources to check to determine if it's a legitimate business, a scam or a threat of identity theft. Avoid providing your credit card, Social Security, Medicare or bank account details to anyone over the phone. Also, never carry personal documents such as a Social Security card with you. Instead, keep these locked up and store digital copies via the free, secure and easy-to-use Master Lock Vault app. The app helps to alleviate the worry surrounding lost or stolen paper documents that contain confidential information, offers a password manager and provides reliable, convenient 24/7 access.
