How do you teach your 3 year old not to open the door for a stranger?

There is time to start teaching toddlers about safety and strangers...What is your answer to the question above? Is a toddler old enough to understand?

Every child is different so it depends on the child, but my 3 yr old knows he is only allowed to open the door when daddy comes home or auntie or nan and pop come to visit.

He has been told that he can only open the door when we hear daddys car stop on the driveway.
The same as with auntie and nan and pop, when the cars have pulled up and they are on the driveway I will unlock the door to let him open it.

I keep my front door locked so he can't just open it and let anyone in if they knock and also so he can't get out or let his sister out.
