Safe to leave wooden shutters open overnight?

I currently live in a place with wooden shutters on the windows. I find it inconvenient to wake up to a dark room and have to open the shutters every morning. Does anyone leave their shutters open ask the time and just rely on glass windows or is this considered unsafe? No neighbours leave their shutters open overnight..

See those spikes on top of iron fences and the heavy steel outer doors that every house has and are locked always? Those things are there for a good reason. I think there are more thieves in Vietnam than any other place I can think of except maybe in prison but we don't have to worry about them for awhile. If you have windows and doors that lock, lock them. Your neighbors are no dummies.

My wife and I have lived in Hanoi for two years and have never had any issues with security. Every culture has an unsavory element. For the most part, Vietnamese are respectful and honest. However, I agree with Icpossum. It is better to be safe.
