The other day I read an article which talked about a new technology called predictive search. This is a type of service that knows what you need before you even ask for it. In a way, it is similar to how your phone might learn where your home and work locations are by using GPS data. After a few points of data your device can determine key locations and have their travel times already calculated, without you needing to input them. This is one of those applications of GPS tracking that I find incredibly useful for myself, but am also hesitant about it because of what could happen if that information got into the wrong hands.
What makes predictive search unique is that it will gather information from everything you do. It will look at emails you write, calendar entries, GPS locations, any digital activity you do. With this information it can do things like remind you of a meeting at 10:00am and that you need to leave 20 minutes earlier than normal because there is heavy traffic. This isn’t something that you’ll be able to just download and have working right away though. It’ll take a lot of time for the software to learn you and your behaviors in order to make more and more accurate predictions. To me it’s a very exciting idea because I can see the potential time saved down the line once enough information has been gathered. This same information is already being gathered to direct more relevant ads and content to me, which I think is great. I would much rather see an ad for a product that I really am interested in, than some random ad based on very broad demographics. From a business perspective, I can also see the huge efficiency increases by being able to find your target consumers quicker and easier. Yet I still find myself hesitant about jumping on board with allowing apps access to my information.
My main problem with any technology that wants my personal information isn’t that I’m giving away these private details, it’s not knowing where or what my information is being used for. Most of the apps I download don’t really make it clear why they need access to my phone conversations or other areas of my phone, or who is being given this information as well. It’s this lack of transparency which makes it hard to trust a third party with the data that could benefit both them and me. Lack of trust makes it hard to be willing to hand over private information pertaining to yourself. If the third parties that collect our data were more upfront about what it was being used for and who would be able to use my data, I would be a little more willing to hand it over.

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!
