RFID chips are these tiny two way radios embedded in more than 100 million credit cards and passports.Â The RFID chip can emit the account number, expiration data and other information from the credit card, passport and other ID cards. However, this contactless innovation posts more risks for credit cards and passports owners to become victims of electronic pickpockets, payment fraud, and identity theft.
There are easy to buy credit card readers which can read, through electro-magnetic emission, the credit account number, expiration date, and even name from any RFID enabled credit card nearby. The card owner could be unaware of the crime that is happening because the card readers are so tiny that they can easily be concealed. The crime can happen in any crowded area like the subway, elevator, mall, restaurants, practically anywhere.
Itâ€™s a good thing there are now RFID blocking products that can help protect yourself. The Identity Stronghold RFID blocking products can prevent electronic pick pocketing, identity theft and payment fraud by blocking the personal information being sent by radio waves from the credit cards and passports. These products are approved by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to effectively prevent reading of contactless smartcards and passports.
The products include Secure Badgeholders for ID cards, Sleeves and Holders for passports, secure Sleeves for Payment and ID cards, Signal Blocking Cell Phone Bags, and the new RFID wallets. These products create an RFID shield by blocking the electromagnetic energy necessary to power and communicate with contactless credit cards and passports.
