The biggest problem that multi-device users face revolves around restricted file access. Let’s say you have a desktop computer where you store your photos. You have another laptop that houses your videos, and then an iPad with all of your music. There are a surprisingly limited number of ways to connect your content across all of those devices. The solutions become even thinner when you add devices with varying operating systems; and many of these solutions come with a myriad of other problems. These include uploading speeds, storage limitations, and concerns with privacy and security.
The relatively recent development of cloud storage services have come to offer one type of solution to the remote access conundrum. Services like Dropbox and iCloud grant users a limited amount of storage space to upload content onto their servers. Users can then access that content via their respective apps and websites. It’s a fairly straightforward solution and works well for the most part.
There are several downsides to cloud storage. Cloud storage was originally intended to solve the problem of document-based file access. Consequently, most of these services don’t perform well with streaming media. Sure, you can view and download your content to play in external apps, but attempting to browse and stream music or videos in the cloud is often a nightmarish, ugly experience.
The final problem with cloud storage services is the lack of privacy and security. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that storing your content on a third-party server will entail a slight amount of cyber-insecurity. In a 2011 data breach, around 68 million Dropbox user's credentials were compromised. That doesn’t necessarily mean that hackers were able to access all of their content, but it definitely didn’t help to appease consumers who were already wary of cloud computing issues.
Another thing to consider is that cloud storage services have unfiltered access to your files. Due to legal obligations, these services can be forced to release your content at a moment's notice. The bottom line is, when you use cloud storage, you are providing hackers and questionable authorities with one more potential entrance point; and with the amount of devices and online accounts that most consumers have, another insecure entry point is the last thing that anyone needs.

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!
