RFID technology is fairly new, but the criminal elements in society have already worked out how to use it to their advantage to steal credit card data from a distance! Modern passports and some credit cards are fitted with RFID chips that allow the data they contain to be scanned from up to a few feet away. It makes perfect sense to use RFID scanners at the airport or in a shop or warehouse to control stock, but in the hands of data skimmers this technology can put your data at risk!
Prevent your credit card data from being stolen without your knowledge by using the RFID blocking Travelling Light wallet by Sea to Summit. Lightweight and containing four pockets for cash or cards, this card holder can be used on its own as a travel wallet or inserted into another wallet to hold cards and protect against RFID skimmers by blocking the radio waves that are used to collect information from a distance.
The RFID card holder is made from durable grey 210D fabric and the design includes an elastic loop which is a simple, but effective closure and keeps the contents from spilling out in your pocket.
This useful wallet is an indispensable travel accessory to take the worry out of travelling, but it is also handy to have when you’re closer to home so you can go about your day without concern over being attacked by data scammers.
