Traveling with RFID
Even though you may have double-checked the lock on your door, called ahead to let your bank know that you would be traveling, and left emergency phone numbers with family members, you may not have realized that you've still left yourself exposed.
Millions of credit cards, debit cards, and passports issued since 2006 are embedded with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip that contains personal information.
The technology was designed to let us bypass the standard requirements of scanning or checking in. However, electronic identity thieves have undermined the security of RFID products by devising scanners that read your personal information without you even realizing it.
Blocking 13.56MHz frequencies, the standard for most credit cards and passports, items such as the RFID-Blocking Credit Card Shield have allowed individuals to protect themselves from electronic pickpocketing and identity theft.
