From track­ers to trans­mit­ters and lock­sto screens, a world of phys­i­cal se­cu­rity items can keep you and your pos­ses­sions pro­tected.

SOFT­WARE THAT KEEPS your data yours is one thing, but what about the de­vices you use ev­ery sin­gle day? How do you keep those out of the wrong hands? You can tie them down — lap­top ca­bles of­fer more than a sim­ple vis­ual de­ter­rent with their re­in­forced steel, and when in tran­sit, a se­cure, locked case is a sen­si­ble op­tion. These are fine for when you’re leav­ing them unat­tended or turned off, but even when you’re in front of your lap­top, sen­si­tive in­for­ma­tion can be quickly and eas­ily snapped. Locks for pre­cious house keys seems like an oxy­moron, so en­ter the Blue­tooth tracker to take care of those, which act like hom­ing bea­cons, and can be at­tached to a plethora of other ev­ery­day items, too. Wal­lets, back­packs, suit­cases can all go stray, and the power of these track­ers isn’t to be un­der­es­ti­mated. We’ve also cov­ered per­sonal se­cu­rity in this roundup, and some of the more sub­tle, hid­den items can be truly sur­pris­ing.
