The Silent Pocket product line is made up of wallets, bags, cases and accessories that block wireless signal. Below are frequently asked questions, if you need more assistance please reach out firstname.lastname@example.org
Silent Pocket® is a patented signal blocking technology that creates a Faraday Cage around your mobile devices such as phone, tablet or laptop. Once inside the Faraday Cage acts as an impenetrable shield between your mobile device and radio frequency signals, which are emitted and received by your device. For the root of "Faraday" see this link to Michael Faraday the inventor Faraday cage
The Faraday cage was invented by Michael Faraday and in laymen's terms, is a metallic cage that blocks electromagnetic energy. What is inside is unaffected. By utilizing conductive properties such as metal it redistributes the exterior electromagnetic charges in such a way that the interior and exterior fields cancel each other out.
Yes the products are MIL‐STD‐188‐125‐2 compliant, based on High-Altitude Electromagnetic Pulse Protection Testing compliance by Keystone Compliance. If you would like to read the report please click here.

SAR ratings stand for Specific Absorption Rate. These are rates established through testing of electronic devices and how they absorb into human flesh. For more information about what your iPhone or Android is doing to your body, please read this blog.
No, Silent Pocket® products do not damage wireless devices.
Your service is temporarily interrupted in a passive way, and resumed in 10-20 seconds when the phone is taken out from inside the enclosed Faraday cage.
Great question! Smart phones are never really "off" because you cannot remove the power source. In many cases, phones may still be active even though they appear to be turned off. We view this more as "dormant" even though the phone seems to be off, it may still be able to remember and/or report your location.
Slipping your phone into a Silent Pocket® creates an electromagnetic barrier between the phone and the Cellular, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, RFID networks. You're completely off the grid anywhere anytime!
Yes! Please submit an application with your information here.
When your phone regains service from being in the Faraday cage it will receive all missed data including texts, emails, voicemails, notifications, alerts, etc. Sometimes it is handy to switch from airplane mode to active to speed up the process of regaining service.
Quite the contrary, everyone and everything is following you and tracking your location. If you want to be able to go from point a to point b with no one the wiser (gov, corp, person) then utilizing a Faraday bag is the perfect solution.
Not anymore! When we had flip phones operating on analog yes, your phone would search for service draining your battery. But now your smart phone goes into a hibernation since it is not being pinged by any signals. In fact, leaving your device inside for extended periods of time (ie. overnight) conserves battery life significantly. Try it!
Your phone rings through normally for the caller and takes them to voicemail. Once you remove your phone, you will receive any voicemails left, but will not see missed calls.
Yes, your phone’s alarm will not be silenced and you'll still be able to use the functions of setting reminders on the internal time clock.
Please note the products are not sound proof, so if you choose to play downloaded music, set an internal alarm, or have reminders make sure you can still hear those.
There are many! In addition to fully blocking signals and giving your life more privacy, security and health our products protect against identity theft, scanning and lifting of personal information from RFID chips found in credit cards, passports, ID badges, etc. They also have anti-radiation properties to shield against EMF, EMR and negative health related issues.
Yes, Radio Frequency (RF) waves are actually varying electric and magnetic fields. Silent Pocket® patented technology in conjunction with Multishield® material lines our SLNT® products to block all RF signals associated with your mobile devices. This includes high frequencies (cellular, WiFi), ELF (extremely low frequencies) and Thermal Heat. Think of it as a cloak, lead box, or safe room uninhibited by the external world or the internal world of the Faraday cage.
Your car's key fob, smart key or rfid card goes inside the shielding material of the Silent Pocket® pouch and gets snapped shut. Once inside, your key will no longer unlock your car doors or start your ignition. This is extremely important to protect against Relay Attacks where you car's key fob signal is amplified (from your house, purse, pocket, office) and thieves are able to unlock and in some cases drive away with your vehicle.
Further uses are a stash key left inside your car (you can't leave a connected key fob inside your car with the ability to actually "lock" your doors. Now you can!), leaving your fob behind when you surf, stand up paddle or do water activities as well as when you are not using your phone and you are in an area where the proximity to your vehicle could be compromised by a relay attack.
Even more so than water, frequencies can leak out of the tiniest of spaces. That said, you have to tightly roll down our Dry Bags at least 3x (4x is optimal), and secure the clips together. Be sure to let some air out by pushing against your body then rolling down the flaps with a tight grip. You will then notice the bag holds air, blocks water and signal.
To test its signal-blocking capabilities, simply drop a smart phone inside, roll it tightly as described above, and call it from another phone. When it does not ring, you'll know it's working. This is for the phone dry bag, 2.5 liter, 5 liter, 10 liter, duffel bag and backpack. See those products here

Regain control over your health is what we preach. The proof is in the pudding. It is stated that we look at our phones more than 80 times a day, which in no way is healthy. We believe in disconnecting and preserving your headspace for positive mental health as well as the protection from the harmful effects from EMF and EMR radiation.

Yes, we encourage this! A great time to disconnect from your phone, white light and the feeling of being responsive to a device. By placing your phone inside a Silent Pocket® Faraday Sleeve at night you can instantly block all harmful radiation to your body/head and not be distracted by alerts. By implementing this into your nightly routine (unless you're on standby for children or need your phone) you can gain more restful sleep and still use your phones internal alarm if you choose.
Go beyond airplane mode at night and adopt a Faraday Sleeve so you can sleep how humans are meant to sleep. If you're interested in a 24 hr detox from screens, check out our free guide here.
These products contain an internal Faraday Cage with Metal and Flammable Components. These products are not intended to be carried in a pants pocket and can wear down the cage quicker than normal. We highly recommend carrying our small products in hand or in a backpack, bag, etc.
Keep your products away from external heat sources. The external material is Weatherproof, but NOT all products are Waterproof. Sustained water exposure on sleeves can lead to corrosion or mold. If your products are dirty, use a small amount of water on a rag.
It can in some cases, but not effective enough to call a solution. It would fail in most enviroments from blocking wireless signal. Plus it looks like tinfoil and your $1000 smartphone deserves a little bit more style with a refined SLNT® product. Leave the tinfoil for kitchen use!
Yes! The Faraday cage reads just like any other textile going through the X-ray machine and will not be flagged.
No. While a majority of our products are full Faraday cages we also make products that can be used to maintain your Privacy, Security and Health more descretely in your regular, everyday type bag. Our products that are not full Faraday cages come with removeable sleeve(s). Be sure to check the Description, Dimensions and Specs of each item before purchasing.
We also make products that only offer RFID and NFC shielding. These products will not block any other signals.
Unfortunately you will not be able to charge your phone while it is inside the Phone Sleeve or Utility Bag due to the cord creating a space in the closure.
However, you would be able to charge your phone while inside our products if you had a portable charger that fully fit with your phone without leaving any spaces at the closure.
Yes! You can download music from your prefered music platform. These songs will be accessible while your phone is inside your SLNT products without needing WiFi.
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!
