With a big portion of our brand being centered around these mobile devices and what we use them for, it is impossible for us to not call attention to "Facebook's" so called "Metaverse" after it was announced by Mark Zuckerberg.
As we have seen mobile device use only increase in the past decade to its highest point (around 5 hours a day on your phone alone) there have been very traceable causes for this increase. Social Media is largely to blame and effects far more than just the younger generations as these massive companies have begun to increase their reach throughout far more than their original app/website.
While Friendster and Myspace were the so called original Social Media, their influence stopped at your computer, and allowed you to continue on with other activities or relationships by simply walking away. We can't deny that Facebook and Twitter began their journey here as well, but it was the transition into the mobile application space that really turned our lives around for better or worse. The invention of the iPhone and Android as a more advanced version of the previous Palm Pilot, Blackberry, and Trio; gave way to a whole world where suddenly you could take almost everything from your computer throughout your daily life.
No longer being limited to the confines of the computer allowed these companies, as well as Instagram and TikTok, to gain a huge audience and influence daily interactions around the world. These companies, especially Facebook, grew a platform that suddenly linked companies and consumers in the digital world.
Which is where we come in.
We understand that the connection with our devices, and by extension the applications on them, is growing at an unhealthy rate and will continue to do so if our society doesn't take agency over it's device use.
This so called "Metaverse" is the next step in this transformation to a more digital world and quite frankly scares us. As a company with a massive user base between facebook, instagram, and whatsapp; they are perfectly poised to take over the whole digital sphere at some point. This "rebrand" speaks volumes to a plan to move out of these specific applications and into an even bigger digital superpower.
The New York Times writes,"If it works, Mr. Zuckerberg’s metaverse would usher in a new era of dominance — one that would extend Facebook’s influence to entirely new types of culture, communication and commerce."
We know that Facebook and its advertisers, aka 99% of all businesses, are already constantly tracking your location data, search terms, and more to "sell to you better." What it actually means is that they are creating a digital profile of each and every person on this platform that will only increase as we move into the so called metaverse.

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!
