In this age of digital information, you need RFID skimming protection. Thieves these days are using electronic devices called “skimmers”, and from a few feet away, can steal your personal information from driver’s licenses, passports, and credit cards.
RFID wallets are designed to keep these modern day pickpockets away from your information by the use of a smallFaraday cage which offers RFID skimming protection. Because passports, credit cards, and driver’s licenses now have Radio Frequency Identification Chips, which broadcast different types of information wirelessly in order to verify your identity or make a purchase remotely so you do not even have to swipe your card. While convenient, this technology opens up the possibility of having your cards RFID skimmed by a reader without your knowledge!
Without the use of an RFID skimming protection, a thief, from a few feet away, could “skim” your name and country of origin from your passport. Other skimming devices can grab *all* of your credit card information simply by walking by you in a crowded area such as a mall or airport.
Hackers at various conferences have demonstrated why we need to use RFID wallets. For just a couple of hundred dollars worth of equipment that anyone can purchase, RFID equipped credit cards can easily and undetectably be skimmed to get the card’s number and expiration date, and the one-time CVV number used by RFID equipped cards that are used to authenticate payments at any number of wireless Point of Sale (POS) terminals.
These wireless, RFID enabled cards are quite common, and according to theSmart Card Association, there are more than 100 million of them in use today. A thief with a reader on his or her person could simply bump into you and steal this information in under a second. Back in 2006, the New York Times published an article in the Business section entitled “Researchers See Privacy Pitfalls in No-Swipe Credit Cards”, and if it could be done way back then, imagine how sophisticated these scanners are today!
Just a few weeks ago, a Facebookpost went viral depicting a would-be thief using a Point of Sale (POS) device to skim the cards of people a train. Because almost all new bank and credit cards in the United Kingdom have these contactless, RFID chips, all a person needs to do is get close to you, “skim” the card remotely, and make a small transaction of less than £30, which does not require a PIN.
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!
