By the time you get to your hotel, you’ve waited at the airport, on the plane and in transit. Checking into your room may also mean a wait — but not if your hotel offers mobile check-in and a digital room key.

Some hotels offer these features through their mobile apps, allowing guests to bypass the front desk and head straight to their room without the wait. The room door opens with the mobile key when the phone touches the lock on the door.

Mobile keys are convenient timesavers, but as a new technology, they may not be without vulnerabilities.
