(RFID) Protection

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is an emerging technology that uses an electronic field to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. United States Pass Ports, driver’s licenses, and most major credit card companies are now using the technology to make cards more secure, as well as easier to use for credit card purchases.  However RFID-enabled cards have some unique security risks. One risk is the chance that someone with a souped-up scanner will be able to read your card information from afar without your knowledge.


In 2009 a team of researchers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, was able to construct scanners capable of skimming both the cardholder name and card number from a variety of first-generation RFID credit cards. Then they found a way to transmit that data back to a card reader, tricking it into accepting a "purchase."  Security has improved some since then, but so has the ability for the criminal to use scanners.


You can help protect your identity from scanners by using wallets, or sleeves to block the ability of a scanner to see your RFID cards.


The below selected products have RFID protection to help block the ability of a scanner to read your RFID information.
