Keyless entry to vehicles was first debuted in the 1982 Renault Fuego, but it took until 2019 to finally build a key fob that was resistant to signal boosting.
In the early days, the signal from the key fob needed to be aimed specifically at the receiver, and if you owned one of these early cars then you know how hard it was to make this happen. Unfortunately, another downside was that this signal could be blocked by stronger signals, thus spawning a new way for thieves to prevent owners from getting into their cars and then breaking in themselves.
As manufacturers began to adapt to this, the next big step was in 1998 by Mercedes Benz and added: "keyless go" or the modern keyless entry system. This system has remained largely adopted by all car manufacturers and also unchanged. Allowing thieves to perfect signal boosting of key fobs, where they can now take your key fob's signal and use it on your car.
In 2014, car manufacturers began to experiment with testing more stringent measures on key fobs, but these new versions are only starting to be adopted on consumer models.
The newest car models of Audi A6, BMW 1 Series, 8 Series, and X6, Volkswagen Passat, and Ford Puma were among the ones tested by Thatcham Research for increased keyless security. The new keyfobs have a "sleep mode" that activates when the fob is at rest for an extended period of time, and then functionality is restored when it is picked up. This sleep mode shortens the length of the signal to prevent signal boosting.
We hope that this becomes adopted by all car manufacturers in the future, but unfortunately, this will not help you if you have an older car.
We recommend keeping your key fob in a Faraday Sleeve at night or during the day when you are at home, as this will prevent thieves from boosting your key fobs signal.

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

I bought 4 Faraday Silent Pockets after reading about car fob venerability. I feel must more secure now. Get yours today to stop thieves from duplicating your fob’s signal anywhere!
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!
