-Steps to protecting your RFID information

A few decades ago if a thief attempted to steal your information they would need to physically get their hands in your pocket. As we head into 2020 pickpocketing is a thing of the past, credit card thieves have unfortunately advanced with the times. While equipped with a RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) scanner a person can steal your credit cards, gate-access cards or even your driver license information. If you recently learned how RFID works you may be concerned of a stranger compromising your personal information without physically touching you. We are here to help make products that maximize your RFID blocking, keeping your personal information safe for years to come. 

RFID Blocking Defined

RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) blocking refers to products that protect your cards that have RFID tags. Modern day credit cards, also known as "smart cards", have a RFID chip inside of them to make transactions faster. Who likes waiting in line anyways?
All RFID blocking wallets range in terms of their protection. What determines the RFID protection level is based upon what the wallet is made of. Steel and aluminum materials will have the highest form of protection. Hence, why we designed our Armored Summit (pictured below)our most protective RFID blocking wallet. At 95% protection rate, this ultra thin steel wallet can protect up to eight of your personal cards at once.

Reasons To Protect Against RFID Fraud

As a civilization we depend on technology more each day. We value time and efficiency more than ever, if there is a better way to complete a task we take that route. As we evolve RFID will become more widely used, credit card companies will issue more smart cards and more apartment buildings will use RFID tags to provide entry instead of a traditional lock and key. Personally, I have lived in a apartment with a RFID tagged key without knowing it could have been compromised. Education is key, find out how RFID works and if you have RFID tags in your life that are in need of protection. RFID keys are commonly used in high-security occupations, hospitals and government agencies. Chances are if you are using a RFID card to access a secure area you have been warned to use RFID blocking wallets!


Taking Steps to Protecting Your Information

No one likes being stolen from. Just as you would lock you door after leaving home to prevent anyone entering while you're away, your RFID cards are begging for the same attention. If you have RFID tags in your life in need of protection you'll want to know where to buy a RFID walletWhen purchasing a RFID wallet make sure it provides the level of security you are searching for. Each company advertising RFID wallets should back that statement with a RFID Protection Test ResultsIf the wallet you are looking to buy is "RFID Blocking" but there is no evidence to back up that claim be wary. 

Summary:
-
RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) blocking refers to products that protect your cards that have RFID tags.
-RFID widely used in major credit cards and modern living
-
If you have RFID tags in your life in need of protection you'll want to know where to buy a RFID wallet
