Online Shopping Safety Tips


IOT Devices

It wasn't that many years ago when all you had to worry about when giving electronics as gifts, was making sure you had batteries. Now, you need to know how to hook up a game console to the internet. Even Teddy Ruckspin (or his descendants) need an IP address. With so many toys on the market this year that speek geek, even Santa is sleeping with one eye open.
 Always set/change the passwords for internet connected toys and gadgets.
