As we continue to monitor the situation around Covid-19 contact tracing there have been some new steps to note.
These applications and the software to make it happen could arguably have been rushed to market by various countries and companies alike. They all claim to have privacy at the top of their list, but do they really? We have extensively covered various reasons we think this is a bad idea and how it can affect our personal liberties going forward.
If you missed our past entries, we have cited how various policies were put in to place post 9/11 that were never completely repealed, changing the face of persona privacy. Furthermore, because there are now so many different applications, there are just as many data banks. Leaving your personal data at risk in more ways than should be allowed. Finally, there has been an onslaught of fake contact tracing applications that even at times ask the user for a ransom.
All of these applications were brought into question at last week's virtual DEFCON. An event we usually attend in person but was forced online due to current events. The analysts that are brought together during these events found that these applications are taking more data than is necessary, taking too much data, and attempting to widdle it down instead of taking the bare minimum.
Multiple applications were analyzed by privacy researchers and found to be asking permission for data that was deemed unnecessary. Speed to market is one possibility for a proper security review to take place, but we think this is unacceptable when millions of people's private personal and business data is at stake.
We can't stress enough how an easy adoption of a Faraday Sleeve when leaving the house has become a necessity. Allowing quick, and easy disconnection from the connected world.

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!
