Your personal information is under constant threat.
Gone are the days when people only had to keep their wallets safe from pickpocketing. Now, your personal information may be even more vulnerable than ever. Today’s thieves target the RFID chips found in passports, IDs, driver's licenses, and credit/debit cards to steal your identity details from as far as 10 feet away without you even realizing it.
Government agencies can also track your whereabouts with covert RFID scanners at stadiums, airports, and train stations. Through RFID microchips, your personal identity documents are essentially "announcing" your location to the same police-state government that's also spying on your phone calls, emails, and web surfing habits.
Just as thieves have begun to make use of RFID scanning technology, advancements in RFID blocking technology have emerged to counter it.
These recent advancements even come in the form of simple and lightweight RFID blocking sleeves and wallets, so that consumers can conveniently protect themselves from RFID skimming wherever they go. These practical devices can protect your personal documents from RFID skimming by creating an impenetrable shield around your document's RFID-equipped components. This shield repels the electromagnetic energy emitted by RFID readers, while rendering your credit/debit cards, driver's license, and other personal documents “electromagnetically opaque” and undetectable.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags that are attached to certain objects. RFID microchips are embedded in many of these objects, such as credit/debit cards, passports and even driver’s licenses.
Personal identification data from your cards can be stolen from as far as 10 feet away using an RFID reader – and such a device is so easy to manufacture at home that anyone can do it!
Your data can be read even if your passport or card is in a regular wallet. Radio waves go right through fabrics and even walls, which is why you can receive radio broadcasts from inside a building.
All passports issued in the U.S. after 2006 contain RFID chips.
Billions of credit/debit cards contain RFID chips – including yours!
You won’t even know when your data is being stolen, so you can’t take immediate action.
RFID blockers are the only way to be SURE that your information or money won’t be stolen via RFID intrusions.
You can never be too safe from high-tech thieves! Don’t be a victim; empower yourself with the Ranger Gear RFID Blocking Wallet and the Ranger Gear RFID Blocking Sleeves Pack – protect what really matters to you.
