Despite an old rumor about invincibility, Macs remain vulnerable to malware and hackers. However, one of the most common threats Macs face actually comes from a little closer to home: you.

The Pareto Security app helps you manage your Mac’s built-in security features so you don’t inadvertently compromise your computer or network just because you want to download a wallpaper from a sketchy website.

It routinely checks your Mac security settings, making sure everything’s up to snuff. And you can purchase a one-time lifetime license for this personal security tool for Mac for just $12 (regularly $17).

MacBooks make great work computers, but their tiny little displays might be holding you back — especially if you zip through video edits and spreadsheets all day long. If you want the complete workstation experience for National Work From Home Day (that’s today, BTW), you may need a bit more screen real estate.

Desklab offers just that with this portable, plug-and-play 4K monitor, which could transform your MacBook into the dual-screen workstation of your dreams. During our 4th of July sale, it’s only $231.99 (regularly $700) with code JULY20.

The Apple TV has a lot going for it, but the Siri Remote is pretty divisive, to say the least. If you like telling a robot what to do, you’re going to be hard-pressed to find a better remote. However, if you want a traditional TV-watching experience, the voice controls might not be your cup of tea.

Instead, you may like the Function101 Button Remote. The Function101 was designed as a replacement remote for Apple TV and Apple TV 4K, and it may make it a little easier for you to use all the features built into your set-top streamer. For a limited time, you can get the Function101 Remote on sale for $24.95 (regularly $29.95) with code BUTTON5.

Sporting 20,000mAh of capacity, this portable charger lets you fully recharge multiple Apple gadgets at the same time. And you can purchase one for just $32.99 (regularly $89) for a limited time.

Sometimes it feels as though office equipment can sense when you’re in a hurry. You need a digital copy of a document, and your scanner picks that time to scan only a quarter page or reduce your print’s shading to the point that it looks like a ghost.

When you need a high-quality scan, fussing with hardware is probably the last thing you want to deal with. But what if you could scan documents using your iPhone? iScanner does just that, turning your trusty smartphone into a full-featured document scanner that’s easy to use and produces crystal-clear results.

Plus, lifetime iScanner subscriptions are available for just $39.99 (regularly $199) for a limited time.

Imagine you’re having an incredible time traveling abroad. After a night in yet another lovely hotel, you grab your iPhone, put on your Apple Watch, throw your iPad into a bag, and you’re off.

But if you forget even one of the chargers or cables for those devices, the rest of your trip will be wildly inconvenient (at least until you make it to an overpriced travel store). So streamline while you can. Carry one powerful charger for all your devices. Then get a 4-in-1 cable to connect them all to it.

Plus, get that four-way cable while it’s on sale for $17.99 (regularly $34), and you can spend your savings on a couple of chocolate croissants and some fine European coffee.

You probably don’t want to come home to find your precious little one has torn open your MacBook, even in the name of learning. They might discover what a circuit board looks like, but at what cost?
