In this day and age, keeping your electronic data safe is just as great of a priority as protecting your cash and other valuables around the home.

However, due to the size of some media devices and their unconventional dimensions, you may find it difficult to find the appropriate storage for them. Fortunately there are tools immediately available to provide you with the ideal level of protection. These come in the form of laptop security safes, briefcases, and secured shoulder bags.

Determine the Specs Prior to Shopping

With all the safes available on the market it’s quite often difficult to find one which can accommodate wide media devices like laptops or even hard drives. For that reason, it may be in your best interest to explore the world of laptop safes. Before getting into the specifications, the first thing you should do before beginning the search is to determine the exact measurements of your media player or laptop. Why is this important? Well, not all laptop safes possess the same internal and external widths, heights, and depth so it’s critical to be aware of the size necessary for your needs. Typically this information can be found on the devices original box, otherwise a simple internet search will bring up the information depending on your model.

Select the Type of Lock that Appeals to You

Once you’ve got a clear idea of the dimensions necessary, you should decide which type of lock you’d prefer. A digital electronic lock is always a safe route to take if you inclined to lose things like keys, for example. With electronic digital locks, like the one featured on the Chubbsafes AIR Laptop Security Digital Safe, you’ll never need to concern yourself with losing a key. The battery operated and reprogrammable lock allows you to select the combination of numbers you’d like.

Digital Locks are Accessible by Multiple Users

This is also a convenient feature if multiple individuals need access to the contents since more than one code can be programmed into the system. The Chubbsafes AIR Laptop safe comes with an extra wide opening and adequate depth for securing everything for laptops to hard drives and tablets. Plus it has a 4mm thick steel door, 2mm steel body and steel bolt work. In terms of rating, this safe has an advisory cash rating of £1,000 or £10,000 in valuables.

Again, this safe is a best suited for laptop computers, electronic media, important documents, cash, and jewellery. Another type of lock that may appeal to you is the combination biometric fingerprint and digital keypad. With that type of lock, available on the Burton Biosec Home Laptop Fingerprint Safe, all you need to gain entry is your finger! You have the option to also program a pin, but again that’s just one of the many options available to you. The safe is rated for £1,000 or £10,000 in valuables assuming it’s bolted down and it receives a second tier Bronze rating from Robert’s Ratings.
