In the last few weeks, we have been heavy on how COVID-19 and Contact Tracing could forever change our privacy and its relationship with modern technology.
This is not something to take lightly, as Government-mandated tracking is a scary thought for us and many other folks.
What if you found out that the application you downloaded to help get your morning coffee was also tracking you? Check out this recent finding that Tim Horton's was tracking each of their users every few minutes to see if they were visiting competitors.
The company was found to have set up their application to check users' locations every 3-5 minutes, with or without the application being open. As this data was aggregated, it was sent to an American company that logged users' home, workplace, and whether they were visiting a competitor.
The company claimed that location data was used for directions from a customer's current location to a Tim Horton's location and that any other data was used to target them with ads.
It has been noted that while some users' may have "allowed" location use, they would have never expected a company to actively aggregate and log personal data.
We hear about companies using our data all the time, but putting a face to the name makes it that much more real.
It begs the question, What are our Applications doing in the background of our phones? If an app that helps us get coffee easier is actively doing this, then we should all be worried.
Step 1: Go into your settings and see what applications are allowed to use your location data. This may be shocking to you. Change this immediately to not at all, or while you are using the app.
Step 2: Adopt a Faraday Sleeve. Protects your location at all times from COVID-19 Contact Tracing Applications, Any malicious Application, and your Mother.

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 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!
