A Kwikset lock code is an access code that can be used with certain models of door and window locks made by the company Kwikset. It is often used in combination with a physical key, providing added security, as it prevents anyone from being able to simply copy the key and gain access to the space.
Resetting your Kwikset smart lock can have a number of benefits such as regaining control of the lock if it has been compromised or if the lock is not responding normally.
