The National Security Administration (NSA) recently came out with a statement that warned against the location data from your internet-connected devices.
Immediately stating that "Using a mobile device—even powering it on—exposes location data." Referencing how mobile devices are designed to inherently trust cellular networks, providing a real-time data set back to providers.
This data has the potential to be compromised, as we have previously mentioned, and at the very least leads to advertisements rapidly pushed at you. At the extremes, people or groups with malicious intent can actively track you.
The NSA notes that simply turning off Cellular Data and GPS does not do the trick, as there is still potential to be tracked through WiFi and Bluetooth. Currently, one of the biggest security concerns is the widespread use of various applications and social media services that immediately ask for your location when using. They then can take this data set and sell it to the highest bidder.
If that cycle continues, there are many points along the way that a malicious actor can gain your whereabouts or more personal information to target you.
The NSA lists a number of steps, all of which we have talked about in length before, to limit the risk associated with using your device:
They also mention using airplane mode, but as we have noted, that still leaves you open to tracking.
We recommend using a Faraday Sleeve much in the same manner as they state to use devices:
Now if we have talked about this at length before, why is this particular case important? Because it means that the Government is publicly stating what we have known. That our electronic devices DO NOT leave us with the Privacy, Security, and Health that we strive for in our daily lives.

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!
