The LockAware Story

 

It all started when...

We stumbled across a huge problem.

1 in 10 locksmiths online are real.

The New York Times and The Today Show recently revealed that "fake online locksmiths" saturate popular search engines, maps, and even trusted review websites.

"Fake online locksmiths" exploit customers by destroying existing locks and selling new locks, often overcharging by several hundred dollars.

The fake locksmith problem is so severe that it has effectively marginalized many real Locksmiths (small business owners).

Locksmiths and clients needed a safe new way to find each other: LockAware was born.

Our Mission: Make it safe and easy for people to connect with great Locksmiths;

This mission guides our team as we work to build a company and a platform that helps people reliably and safely secure their homes, businesses, and loved ones.

Enhancing the security homes, businesses, and communities is more than our mission, it's our passion!

 

NBC's Today Show has covered "fake online locksmiths" twice.

Odds are good that when you search Google for someone to help you get into your home or car, results will include poorly trained subcontractors who will squeeze you for cash.
