Aussie Deals: Gifts for Security Conscious Gamers

Life isn't always easy. Whether you're navigating online realms or IRL, you should know that pitfalls can and do pop up.

All that being said and as much as we'd all love to be living in a scumbag-free utopia, protective measures are required. Quite a few of them, in fact. A wise traveller will cover themselves for financial protection, physical security, PC file health and even an invisibility cloak to thwart the prying eyes of Big Brother.

Let's take a run at getting you properly Fort Knoxed with all of the above. We've identified smart ways to pay for goods and reduce the percentage chance of ripoffs. We've also included a selection of review-tested VPNS and antivirus software to ensure your batcomputer won't end up riddled with nasties or being monitored by random jokers.

Lastly, although every gamer's dream is to never leave the house, the sad fact is you have to sometimes. We can hook you up (wirelessly, of course) with the best smart home security devices with easy-to-setup solutions that can comprehensively secure your game cave and the precious loot within.
