Quick! Go to WhatIsMyIPAddress.com right now. If the website shows your exact location, then you could be vulnerable to hackers and online scammers — especially when gaming.

So what’s the best way to protect yourself from prying eyes while online? Privacy software like Norton 360 for Gamers. Specifically designed for PC and mobile gaming, you’ll get instant access to a digital download one-year subscription for just $20 at Amazon with this early Prime Day deal — that’s nearly 80 percent off and the cheapest price we’ve seen!

Although this is a digital download (no waiting to get this baby in the mail), you can score more early Prime Day deals if you're an Amazon Prime member. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.

The security software features a wide range of protection against spyware, ransomware and malware that your computer might unknowingly catch. It safeguards against malicious attacks on your system, including DDoS attacks, doxxing and SWATing and works as a secure VPN (virtual private network) that encrypts your data and usage from hackers, online scammers and even your internet provider. In fact, Norton themselves can’t even peek at your online activity with their strict ‘no log’ policy.

"Gamer husband approved! He stress tested this all weekend and works great," shared a delighted spouse and five-star Amazon reviewer. "My husband, our avid household gamer, was very interested in trying this out to keep his tags and whatnot safe (sorry, I'm not the gamer — he is). We have regular Norton, so the gaming tag monitoring with the Norton gaming version as well as full screen detection to limit alerts was the main reasons he wanted to try this. Both of those features work great so far. Download was super easy..."

Norton 360 for Gamers also provides ‘Dark Web’ monitoring with alerts if your personal information — such as gamer tags, usernames and email addresses — appear on the Dark Web. It supports up to three devices, and works for all sorts of Windows, macOS, Android and iOS and iPadOS laptops and mobile devices.

"Fantastic product. Download went perfectly and I feel safe and secure while gaming. The dark web monitoring for gamer tags is a super cool feature and the VPN is great too," raved another five-star reviewer.

In addition, this privacy software keeps your credit cards secure during online transactions, while letting you know which websites are safe and which are bogus.

The Norton 360 for Gamers subscription includes 50GB of secure cloud storage for online photos, gaming video clips and important files and information. It comes with all-day access to Norton technicians and security experts for additional peace of mind, too.

"I bought and downloaded this on two computers, one gaming and one laptop," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I liked the features available for a gaming pc and seems to be working great. The laptop was slow and bogged down and this cleaned it up and made it work like new again. That one was running a free antivirus and downloading this was worth every penny. It was easy to download and use all of the features. Highly recommended!"

It only takes seconds for someone to get access to just about everything stored on your web browser, hard drive and desktop. Stay safe and secure out there, and score this software while it's a steal.
