Going to try using other card to see if I can open my safe.
Kind of defeats the word SAFE!
I work at a hotel that uses magnetic keys. None of your personal information is on there except maybe your name. Credit card information is stored in the PMS (Property Management System). The room key just has an account number on it, and in the case of where I work, your theme park ticket information if you so desire, but that's it. Oh, and checkin / checkout dates and a data field for the room number the key is supposed to open. After the checkout date/time, the key no longer opens the door.
