Today Show: Portable Safe, Pacsafe.com, $100
Many hotels may not come with a safe in the closet or under the wet bar to lock your valuables in. Thanks to pacsafe, you don’t have to worry about your wedding ring at the beach or your extra money when you’re at dinner. The portable safe will lock to an object in the room that the thief can’t get off.
RFID Blocking Bags, Wallets & Passport Sleeves, Pacsafe.com
Once again from pacsafe, these products will stop sneaky thieves. It’s unbelievable that thieves can now download a scanner to their phones and get your information from your credit cards. These credit and debit cards give off an RFID that has all of your information on them. By putting them in that pacsafe wallet, bag, or protective sleeve, thieves can’t scan the codes from inside your pockets and purses.

Free wifi is a hacker’s best friend. Baty strongly recommends purchasing a wifi hotspot from your cellphone carrier. The costs vary from carrier to carrier, but it’s worth it in the end to protect your belongings.
