Car thieves will often break into a house if they can easily get keys and steal the car. Same goes for house keys and other keys. You can leave one spare key with a trusted friend nearby, but don’t leave your house key in a typical hiding spot outside your door, burglars know the spots and tricks.
Habitually back up your media and important data in a place other than home with enough frequency that you wouldn’t lose much if you lost your computer or phone or home. Some good options are backup drives stored elsewhere, as well as in secured cloud storage online.
Close and lock all doors and windows every time you leave your home.
Don’t post too much information online; Never share your home address online, and it is best not to location tag photos. Not only your friends can see these things.
- The most secure locks for the doors are deadbolt locks.
- Keep your smoke alarms and burglar alarms in working order.
- Install lights outside of your home to eliminate the easy hiding spots.
- Replace the lock if you lose a key, especially one with identifying details on it.
- When you are out of town for a while, have someone come and trim the lawn. That way it seems to a prospective robber as though someone is around to keep it up.
