What is RFID?
Radio-frequency identification commonly known as RFID uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The technology has made its way into a variety of items, including credit cards, driver's licenses and passports. These items, which are mostly found in the wallets of people, use embedded RFID chips to transmit information wirelessly to compatible readers to perform functions such as confirming the person's identity or paying for a purchase.
Why RFID Blocking Wallet?
Along with the convenience, however, comes the risk of having the information contained on RFID-equipped items being stolen in a new brand of electronic pickpocketing known as RFID skimming.
Over the years, hackers have demonstrated methods of using handheld RFID readers to acquire information from several feet away. Information that can be extracted this way include the name and country of origin listed in a passport, and more alarmingly, complete credit card numbers.
RFID blocking reduces the readers transmitted signal power, preventing the microchip in the RFID card working and so deters undiscovered skimming by data thefts.
