The Tools Everyone Needs

The Secure Dad has worked with platforms and brands since 2016. I know that protecting your family can be challenging which is why I created a list of my most trusted partners. I only recommend the tools that I use and that I think are helpful to all families. 

Disclosure: Please read before going any further

The Secure Dad is proud to be an affiliate to only a few brands. That means if you click on a link for a tool on this page and make a purchase, then I earn a small commission. This is of NO added cost to you. My recommendations are based on my personal experience, knowledge of these companies, and the relationship I've developed with them. I have negotiated a discount on many of these because I know that every dollar counts in a family budget.

Recommended Tools


#1 Privacy Service

I’ve been a customer of DeleteMe since 2018. I realized how bad data brokers were getting in selling my personal information to ANYONE who wanted it. I needed to protect my name, address, phone number, work history, relatives, email addresses, and more from people who may want to scam or hurt me.


You can read my full review of DeleteMe including looking at my personal DeleteMe report.


I’ve also had CEO Rob Shavell on The Secure Dad Podcast twice and he shows us why he’s a passionate privacy advocate. You can hear my most recent conversation with him.

#1 Door Lock

One of my favorite home security tools is the FlipLok. The FlipLok is a secondary door lock that is easy to use daily and tough for worst-case emergencies. The FlipLok is anchored to the door frame which helps distribute the blunt force of a boot or a battering ram along the length of the frame. The solid build, design, and material offer people a great way to fortify their homes.

Listen to Andy's Interview with Anna Regar of FlipLok on The Secure Dad Podcast.

#1 Privacy Product

SLNT Faraday solutions are an invaluable tool for ensuring the security and privacy of electronic devices. These bags, and cases, made with specialized materials, provide a shield against electromagnetic signals, preventing any incoming or outgoing transmissions. Protect your devices from remote hacking or unauthorized access. By blocking all wireless signals, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and cellular signals, SLNT solutions effectively isolate devices from potential threats, such as remote tracking, data breaches, or malware attacks.


Overall, SLNT offers peace of mind by providing an effective barrier, protecting sensitive information, and enhancing digital security. I use SLNT for my phone, Apple AirTag, and car key fobs.


You can see my video on using a SLNT sleeve to “turn off” my Apple AirTag.

High Speed Daddy

#1 Gear Supplier

I am an OG supporter of High Speed Daddy. This gear is made for protector parents who value quality bags for EDC as well as parenting. I personally use the diaper bag backpack, first aid pouch, lunch bag, and water bottle holder almost every day. I even carried one of the original backpacks around Disney for 33 miles. That same bag sits ready to go with me for the next big adventure. High Speed Daddy is a great company run by an awesome family.
