The Myth: Turning on airplane mode or turning your phone off keeps it completely secure.
Give us a moment to debunk this myth that turning on airplane mode is as good as turning off the phone. A smartphone, in addition to a battery, has upwards of 6 chips that can allow the phone to still send and receive signals when turned off or in airplane mode. After recent revelations thatNSA has the technology to bug phones that are turned off, it makes you wonder, what is the best way to secure a cell phone?
We’ve put together a brief Q&A to answer your questions:
Q: What is the difference between using a Silent Pocket® Faraday Sleeve vs. airplane mode?
A: Airplane mode is fine in certain situations, but is software and hardware dependent. Using a Silent Pocket, you are guaranteed to block all signal communication and connectivity.
Q: Why don't I just turn off my phone?
A: Some phones may still be active even though they appear to be turned off. Even though the phone seems to be off, it may still be able to remember or report your location. Slipping your phone into a patented Silent Pocket® Faraday Sleeve creates an electromagnetic barrier between the phone and the cellular network. You're simply off the grid. No signals get in and no signals get out.
Q: Aside from my phone, what else can I use a Silent Pocket® Faraday Sleeve for?
A: To protect your identity by blocking RFID chipped passports, credit cards, smart keys, ID's, security badges, etc.
Q: Why Should I be concerned about GPS? Nobody is following me...
A: You’re probably right; however location based services are hot right now in technology, and it's just getting hotter. We expect them to come to a full boil this year; parents tracking their kids, employers tracking employees, companies using your everyday habits (where you shop, etc.) to market their wares. It’s a privacy issue - not everyone feels it’s intrusive, but for those who do, Silent Pocket® products can help.
Silent Pocket® is designed to protect the digital assets of your cell phone, credit cards, tablets, and soon laptops as well from data compromising situations, harmful radio frequencies, and tracking.
Once sealed inside one of the cases your device is completely secure - no signals will be sent or received from the phone. Not even your carrier will know where you are!

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 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!
