With the ever growing amount of internet connected devices we carry on our person every day, our sensitive and personal data is at risk. That is why the use of aFaraday Bag or Faraday Cage Sleeve is so important - because they block ALL signals to and from your wireless device.
A Faraday cage works the way it does because it will typically have a metallic enclosure that completes a circuit by conducting these electric frequencies around the outside of said enclosure.
It terms of our products, they use an embedded, proprietary metallic fabric blend that is engineered together precisely in such a way that it forms a complete circuit around your phone, tablet, or laptop.
That’s a great question.
Why you need to use a Faraday Bag specifically comes down to the types of ways our wireless devices can be hacked these days:
1.) Smart phones can be hacked without your knowledge. A good rule of thumb is anything that is connected to the internet can be hacked, and your cell phone is certainly on that list. Connecting to an unsecured WiFi without your knowledge and phishing are the two most common.
2.) Skimming passport data is extremely easy. Anything with an RFID chip is vulnerable to attack, and the personal information on your passport is no exception. A skimming machine can lift (read: steal) that data from several feet away without you ever knowing it has occurred. This is most often used as the start of stealing someone’s identity.
3.) Hackers can break into almost any office with electronics bought on Amazon. Using gear bought on Amazon, hackers can clone your office access badge from 3 feet away within seconds, and once again, you’ll never know it happened - until your office is cleaned out, that is.
4.) The RFID chips on credit and debit cards are also easily skimmed remotely. In nearly the exact same fashion as skimming of office access badges and passports, the RFID chip on our credit and debit cards can also be skimmed remotely and also without your knowledge.
We’re happy you asked that question as well!
Our Faraday bags use the most advanced shielding material available today. Sure, there are many types of metallic shielding material, and as the old saying goes, you will definitely get what you pay for there. Cheaper fabric will not block signals as well, it tarnishes, and the fibers themselves break easily. What this will mean for you is that over time, a cheaper shielding material will start to break down, and will eventually allow signal leakage. If the fibers break, then the circuit cannot be completed and this renders the Faraday cage pouch useless.
If you need a Faraday bag and do not have one, you're gonna have a bad time.
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!
