    confused! what's the difference between them ?

    hello,

    need you help with these two sentences below:

    1 The outer door doesn't lock, somebody could've walked in at any point

    2 The outer door doesn't lock, somebody could walk in at any point


    besides, what does it mean by "at any point " ?


    thank you in advanced

    Inthe first, the situation is no longer true- no one can walk in now. In the second, they still could.'At any point' means 'at any time'.
