With this type of outlet, the circuit breaker in your home will not be prone to shorting out. To prevent the risk of electric shock in places where water is a hazard, then this type of outlet should be installed. There is a localized circuit breaker for GFCI outlets and this is located right where there is a high risk of shock. This can prevent potential hazards like injury from electric shock, electric fires, and other dangers. In a chain of outlets, the first outlet needs to be a GFCI outlet. Wirings can be safely installed and outlets all up to code if you hire the services of a professional electrician.
