In the wake of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and the lockdowns that States, Countries, and Counties are putting into place, there are reports that Governments are using the current state of the world to overlook privacy laws to track their citizens.
They are using technologies that are originally designed for tracking terrorists and public travel around the world. While in many of these countries it is illegal, they are getting around it by using "anonymous" data. This data set will show not only where people are going, but certain areas where people are congregating and blatantly ignoring bans. Even if this data is "anonymous", this data can easily be reverse-engineered to find out exactly who each signal is.
So far, cellular companies in Italy, Austria, and Germany have reported handing over anonymous data to help the government analyze how effective their lockdowns and pleas are.
Elsewhere, the Israeli government has begun to monitor cellphones after issuing the public to stay inside on Tuesday, and China, Taiwan, Vietnam, and South Korea have begun to use data from applications to do the same. With the Australian government's talks of imposing fines on individuals that break the self-isolation rules, we would not be surprised if they are not far behind these other countries.
Will the United States be next to implement this? Or have they done so already?
Only time will tell, and we will be sure to keep you notified if we find anything out.
If you plan to leave the house for anything other than "essential needs," we recommend a Faraday Sleeve for your phone. It will prevent you from being added to that possible data set.

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!
