Why is the programming code required to add or delete a user code?

For added security, a valid 4 to 8 digit programming code must be entered in order to add, delete or change a user or the programming code. In order to prevent unauthorized changes, the programming code should not be shared and a record of all the codes should be kept in a safe place.

The keypad deadbolt can store up to 250 four to eight digit user codes, in addition to the programming code.
