Our Story

  • In 2012, LockAware's founders, Kevin and Marty were hired to work at an "English speaking" call center while living abroad.

  • Months later, Marty confirmed a suspicion that the call center was responsible for coordinating "locksmith scams" in the United States. 

  • In Spring-2014, the co-founders decided to take action and help people avoid the type of locksmith scams that they witnessed first hand.

  • Late-2014, LockAware was established in Los Angeles.

  • In early-2015, LockAware joined the Preccelerator® Program at Stubbs, Alderton, & Markiles in Santa Monica.
