As privacy has become front of mind for many companies and people a like in the last year, Apple has recently released a software update for the iPhone that has made headlines.
What have they done that's so different compared to the usual updates? They've added steps to stop applications from tracking you.
If you've already updated your phone then you've likely seen a pop-up when opening an application for the first time after the update that asks you if you want to be tracked and how.
With the options being allowing the application to track you at all times, while using the application, or never.
However, as this is the first update of its kind, there are of course some kinks. If you, like us, feel like these applications know too much about us and don't even want to give them the option.
Take these following steps:
This will automatically deny all applications from tracking your location and prevent them from getting more information that they can use to advertise to you.
As skeptical as we are about this and other tech manufacturers "Privacy Efforts" we feel that this is a step in the right direction and one towards transparency. We have long felt that the mass amount of location data that companies learn about you based on your travels is something that you should have a right to make sure is not only private, but secure.
This, is only one of the many use cases that we have for our product, but if you're tired of talking about something or walking by a store and then getting an ad for it minutes later, this update and a Faraday Sleeve are the perfect option for you.
Thanks for these tips. Keep them coming! I’m grateful for the advice and love your products.

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!

I don’t have “tracking” option under PRIVACY. Thanks for the tips in the blog.
