What is RFID?
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) refers to a small transmitting device that can be embedded in an object (e.g. credit card) and transmits information from that object to a reading device, such as a grocery store scanner. RFID technology is utilized in many household devices, including passports and credit cards.
What are the Risks of RFID? -
Cards that have RFID can be convenient, but are at risk of Electronic Pickpocketing. Electronic Pickpocketing is the theft of your personal information using scanners that read RFID information from a distance without ever touching your purse or wallet.
For added protection, we recommend setting up alerts to monitor your accounts, regularly practicing general security consciousness, and purchasing our Security and RFID-blocking products to reduce the risk of wirelesses pickpocketing theft.
Right now, all of our brands are offering 30% off our SecureMyID RFID-blocking products.
