When is a safe not safe? That is the question thousands of customers of the security company Liberty Safe found themselves asking when they discovered that the company was handing out their customers’ safe access codes to the FBI (with minimal pressure.)
Now, the company’s “apology” is making matters worse for some.
Liberty Safe, which calls itself “America’s #1 Safe Manufacturer,” kicked off the controversy when it posted a lengthy statement concerning its cooperation with Joe Biden’s corrupt FBI:
The company noted that in August, it provided the FBI with the access codes for a customer’s safe because the agency had a “warrant to search their property.” That bit of pressure was all Liberty Safe needed before it handed over the customer’s access codes.
“Our company protocol is to provide access codes to law enforcement if a warrant grants them access to a property,” the company proclaimed in its statement.
The admission that the company is handing out security codes just by being asked rattled customers who assumed that when they bought a safe it was, you know, safe.
Naturally an outrage ensued. So, the company quickly replied to the outrage by updating its policy on how it handles access code data.
Liberty Safe explained that it had always maintained a database of access codes in case a customer lost his combination, or in the case of maintenance and repairs. But now it is offering a new service where customers may fill out a consent form to have Liberty Safe delete its access code records for a customer’s safe.
The company warns that if a customer chooses this option, the company will no longer be able to help buyers get into their safes if they’ve lost or forgotten the combination.
“This change allows customers to take control of how their information is stored and protected,” the company said in its Set. 6 statement. “We understand that many of our customers are willing to assume the responsibility of safeguarding their own combination.”
“While those who opt out pf our data storage process will have limited recourse on case of a lost combination, we respect their choice and are here to support them in the way that’s best for them,” the company added.
