Social media reacts to Chuck E. Cheese room key hack: “Now you giving thieves the idea to break in.”

Viewers were shocked by the revelation and shared their concerns. “Y’all be showing too much to TikTok with all these weirdos and predators just browsing for new ideas,” one user wrote.

@Belleofhair commented: “This isn’t safe to showcase.”

However, Harper insisted that the hack was harmless. According to her, the trick only worked at the entrance, not on the hotel room doors — or so she thinks. “Lol it only works to get into the hotel, doesn’t work on the room door. Not my room at least,” she clarified.

@44bandz noted: “It’s outdated any card will open it.”

With this information in mind, please stay safe out here, folks!
