Alternately, KeyMe also has 5 kiosks in Manhattan, so local users who store a digital copy of their keys can log in and have a copy made by Larry, the digital locksmith. The app will even work with locksmiths, who will also be able to make a spare key by following the instructions provided on the app.
KeyMe stores as little information as possible and does not retain address information for users. Email notifications are sent whenever a copy of a users key is made and a strong verification process is used with the physical kiosks, which require fingerprint authentication.
