LEWIS N CLARK: DATABLOCK RFID-BLOCKING PASSPORT SHIELD
LEWIS N CLARK
Datablock RFID-Blocking Passport Shield
This virtually weightless passport cover is easy to slip over your passport so that you're protected from RFID signals wherever you go.
If your passport was issued after 2006, it contains an RFID chip. This means it sends signals at a certain frequency which readers are then able to scan. While most scanning is done by airport personnel and other government agencies, individuals can also buy personal readers and scan without your permission.
They're then able to steal all the personal data stored on your passport, which can lead to identity theft and other forms of electronic pickpocketing. This simple shield will protect your information from unauthorized scanning.
Its ultra-lightweight design allows you to store this inside your handbag, laptop case, or other piece of luggage. Despite being thin, it's durable enough to resist the regular wear-and-tear of travel, and it resists moisture as well.
Keep your personal information private with this passport shield today.
- Lightweight and compact protection
- Tear - and wear-resistant
- 5.5in x 4in
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 Passport Shield have allowed individuals to protect themselves from electronic pickpocketing and identity theft.
