The holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year – but they can also be stressful. If you’ve ever felt like you needed a holiday after the holidays, we created one for you: Unboxing Day! Unboxing Day takes place on December 27th and is easy to celebrate. If you received or treated yourself to a new device this holiday, use Unboxing Day to unbox your new gadget and set it up to be cyber secure.

Get cozy, gather your devices, and start celebrating! Here’s how you can do it:
