RFID Blocking Wallets - ARE Your Cards Safe Enough.?

Date: 02-Jun-2015 - Written by Debbie Davies

In a society that demands financial security and risk awareness, shielding the contents of your wallet is of paramount importance. We are conscious of our internet activity and safety and it is imperative that the same diligence is taken with the finances and documents that we keep about our person. Evolutions in the way that we store and move our most important documents have been substantial and the developments in Radio Frequency IDentification technology are enabling greater defenses against risks to money and identification theft. RFID-Blocking wallets and purses are a superb way to ensure that possessions such as credit cards, passports and driving licences are not accessible to rogues who may attempt to track and steal this information. Buyers of a RFID-Blocking wallet should be aware that styles and capabilities vary and so much be conscious of the standards of their purchase.

The majority of UK credit and debit cards are manufactured with RFID technology built into them, as do all passports issued since October 2010. The RFID chip enables authorities to store and track data in documents such as these. The chip has benefits such as swiping abilities at airport check in or swipe payments with bank cards. The chip enables authorities to access information more quickly and enables the owner the convenience of swift interactions. However, RFID technology poses a great threat to the security of this information. With the chip’s greatest convenience being the speedy accessibility to information, it is no wonder that criminals have found an opportune way to life identities and finances from unwary passers-by.

The development of wallets that offer protection against this threat is an intelligent and welcome advancement. Although RFID-Blocking wallets cannot claim to offer foolproof safety, they do provide substantial security against the risks associated with relying on RFID chip technology. The wallet relies on a piece of engineering called the ‘Faraday Cage’, which in essence is an enclosure that offers a shield using a conductive material. This shield blocks the electric fields by channeling the electricity (in this case, of a RFID chip reader) on and around the enclosure, but not through it.
