With office space on the rise all over the country, many companies are turning to co-working spaces that are popping up all over. While they have the many advantages of the modern office such as high speed internet, kitchens, the possibility of public or private desks, and more! Is there more of a cost than your monthly fee?
It was recently found that one of the largest owners of Co-Working spaces, WeWork, has massive security flaws in the wireless networks at their spaces.
One user of the space, Teemu Airamo, found these flaws in the company's Manhattan co-working space. He began his scan because his company had contracts and sensitive documents that needed to stay secure. When he found out that not only was his, but many others information via their devices was easily accessible he tried to let WeWork know, to which they responded that they know.
WeWork offers "high-speed internet" to all its customers, but was recently found that their most basic option has multiple vulnerabilities, such as a very basic internet password that seems is even repeated at multiple locations, nationally and perhaps internationally. At the same time, WeWork charges extra for their private network and even more for a private line for your company. With the multiple users on a single day that are members or one time users, security should be a priority for the company.
Because of this, Airamo has made multiple attempts to contact the company on the upper level, it seems that nothing changes. Over the years he has seen the same thing over and over, which is why he took matters into his own hands.
He started first by using a VPN service for his company, which worked for years but began to be too slow for his needs. His most recent security measure is to route all of his company's traffic through a computer that authenticates the data.
While we understand that this is a highly complicated and extensive task for most, we recommend that you be weary of using the open network at your local co-working space. There are many free VPN options available for single use and low cost ones for company use that could save your company.

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!
