In light of Google and Apple's recent announcement to create a contact tracing software to be installed in any COVID-19 (Coronavirus) facing application, France is pushing ahead on its own version.
But there's a hiccup.
With the development of this tracking application, France has asked Apple to peel back some of its Bluetooth Privacy Standards. This currently is apart of Apple's security protocol and prevents Bluetooth from constantly running in the background.
If this is peeled back by Apple, then the French Government would allow them to instill contact tracing/geofencing, tracking each citizen to see who they have come in contact with, and storing it in a central location (hello hackers?).
At present, the Google and Apple version is supposedly on an Opt-In basis, but this French version is a first at embarging on everyone's civil liberties. If Apple were to concede and pull back, this could pave the way for companies and governments the world over to start tracking without that "accept" button.
Once these digital rights begin to be infringed on, it is next to impossible to take steps backward and reestablish our privacy and security.
Now, More Than Ever; is the time to take steps toward your personal privacy. As these companies use COVID-19 to work on software that is cutting into our privacy, security, and health. Because once this is over, we don't know what these companies will use this information for.
Storing your phone in a Faraday Sleeve when you leave the house allows you to go about your day while knowing that anywhere you go stays private. That means no more ads targeted towards where you just went, and more importantly, no one watching over your shoulder.

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!
