Traveling home for the holidays? During this holiday season, over 103 million people will travel to spend the holidays with family and friends. The airports and subway stations will be extremely crowded and hectic. Identity theft, hacking, and tracking are very prevalent during the holiday season especially in crowded areas. It is important to protect your personal and financial data while traveling this season. Here are 9 cyber security tips for traveling this busy holiday season:
Before heading to the airport, it is a good idea to change all passwords you use on the daily like your online banking password or email. When changing your passwords, make sure you change it to something challenging and a different password then any of your previous passwords with that account. Once you return, you can reset all your passwords.
During the holiday season, RFID skimming is very common in crowded airports and subway stations. RFID skimming is one form of digital theft. RFID skimming takes sensitive information from your credit cards, ID, and passport and duplicates it. The most efficient way to prevent identity theft is to use a RFID blocking wallet. By utilizing Silent Pocket's wallet collection, you instantly safe guard all your information on your credit cards, ID, and passport.

Public Wi-Fi is usually an unsecure network where hackers are able to hack into your personal or work sensitive information. If you do decide to use Wi-Fi, it is advised to refrain from online shopping, online banking, and checking your email. These types of activities have sensitive personal and financial information that you do not want in the wrong hands.
Many people traveling for the holidays usually take the time to finish up last minute work at the airport or subway stations. It is important to take precautions when connecting to public Wi-Fi. The best way to secure your laptop and phone is to use a VPN while connected to public networks. A VPN is a Virtual Private Network that secures connection between business offices and remote devices, and it encrypts and shares data over a secure connection.
It is very important prior to traveling to update your operating systems on all your devices. On your phone and tablets, make sure to update all your apps especially apps like Uber or Venmo that have sensitive financial data.
Bluetooth connectivity can create problems in public places. When your Bluetooth is left on nearby hackers can connect to your phone and hack into it. Keep your Bluetooth disabled as much as you can while traveling.

Music is a necessity for me. My i-pod needs protection also, as my info is on it as well as my music. This sleeve fits it perfect.
I had to upgrade my phone and was extremely concerned with the 5G capabilities. This bag completely blocks ALL signals. I place my phone in my bag when I go to bed at night! Would 100% not only purchase again, but would purchase for friends/family, too! 5 stars!!
Perfect for blocking signals and also a day on the boat. 10/10 definitely recommend.
A must have for anyone whom privacy is important 5 star product
Thank you guys for supporting the fight for our right to privacy and combating mass surve.. Keep up the good work, the bag is amazing quality and I love the privacy stickers. Thanks a lot SLNT

I absolutely love my backpack I purchased… we need to protect our privacy now more than ever. I don’t travel without this & neither should you 😎
This is definitely a great bag for your phone. It sure seems to block everything I have tried to throw at it. Will be purchasing more!
Seems to work as expected. Hope to never do a hard test. Feel my backups are now well protected.
I purchased the SLNT pocket that an iphone 11 with an Otter Box fits in. The quality of the finished product is HIGH. I'm not addicted to my phone, so this allows me to place the phone in the pocket before traveling about daily without dropping digital crumbs along the way that could be used to reverse engineer my personal movements, locations and destinations with greater ease. I value my privacy due it being a fundamental human right despite what any judge or agency claims to the contrary.
I was very pleased to realize that this particular SLNT fits into my back pants pocket!!! The width is 'just right'. Now that's attention to detail. This is my 3rd SLNT and I recommend them to a lot of folks. Most have never heard of such a product, let alone the reason to have one and use it.
To anyone considering these products, as others have said, just get it! We live in an age where we need it. Location tracking is digital stalking. I really appreciate that some dirtbag won't be able to pull info out of my device either. Thank You SLNT, nice job.
Excellent quality, handsome, fit well, I like them and use them. Good to have protection.
Live in a condominium area. Thank you for giving me back my privacy!!
My laptop is now waterproof, padded and protected from solar flares, EMP's, hackers and trackers.
And it looks good too
4-5 starts.... well made, great function ...not only do I feel like I've helped secure my privacy but when I place the phone in the pocket I am able to disconnect from tech and have quiet private time with less stress and fewer distractions. Psychologically its been a great aid to me.
The Silent Pocket is a fantastic accessory, I am sleeping better with lack of EMF in the room and knowing that my privacy is literally in my hands.
Shipping took very little time, very happy!
