The RFID protection strip “Wallet Guard” offers many benefits:
What is RFID?
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology for contactless data exchange. RFID chips are included in almost all modern cards and IDs, including your passport.
What is identity theft?
In the case of identity theft, your personal data is stolen and used. This includes your name, date of birth, address, biometric data, driver's license, social security number, bank account, and credit card numbers. The more the thief knows about you, the easier the fraud becomes.
What can happen?
The stolen data is misused by the thief to gain financial benefits using your identity. This includes purchases or access to banking and insurance services. But there's more. Since the criminal acts in your identity, you may have to prove your innocence to the police, authorities, your insurance company, or your credit institution. This can be time-consuming and very stressful. The damage to your reputation can be nearly impossible to repair. In Europe and the USA alone, the sum of direct property crimes amounts to several hundred billion dollars per year.
But aren't credit cards well protected?
Unfortunately not. Even with the latest generations of credit cards, a simple Android app is enough to wirelessly read the data. With your name and card number, the thief can go on a shopping spree. You certainly don't want that.
What makes Soomz RFID protection strip 'Wallet Guard' so secure?
A thin layer of lightweight metal has been incorporated into the Soomz protection strip. This layer blocks the magnetic field from RFID scanners. "We had the material tested by TÜV for mechanical construction and radio wave shielding, and it lives up to its promises," says Patrik Scheiber, engineer and Soomz product developer." The sleeves provide reliable protection on the most common frequencies 125 kHz, 13.56 MHz, and 900 MHz according to device standards MILSTD-285, NSA65-6, IEEE299, and EN50147-1 used in most RFID systems. We also had the RFID protection strip tested by manufacturers of reading devices," Scheiber adds.
