This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Sometimes, protecting your valuables is all about making them a more difficult target, something that these drawer safes do nicely. Not only that, but they prevent unauthorized access to sensitive items, including guns, medications, documents, and more. And although the models you'll find here run toward the smaller side, the amount of worry they lift from your shoulders should be quite large. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best drawer safe on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 20, 2018:

Selected the AmazonBasics Desk Safe and Safego Indoor/Outdoor as budget-conscious tools for securing valuables, as well as the V-Line Desk Mate for those who want something more robust. Added the Vaultek VT20i despite concerns that it can be hacked, as the company seems to have patched this issue. Omitted other similar biometric models, including the Stack-On PDS-1500, due to ongoing hacking/picking concerns.
