What is RFID?
RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) enables contactless data exchange. RFID chips are present 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 by others. Thieves can access details such as your name, birthdate, address, biometric data, driver's license, social security number, bank account, and credit card numbers. The more the thief knows about you, the easier it becomes for them. Don't let this happen.
What can happen?
The stolen data is used to gain financial advantages by the thief using your identity. This includes making purchases or accessing banking and insurance services. But there's more. Since the criminals acting in your name and using your identity, you may have to prove to the police, authorities, your insurance company, or your credit institution that it wasn't you. This is often much more challenging than you might think and can be very stressful and disruptive. The damage to your reputation is almost impossible to repair. In Europe and the USA alone, the sum of direct property crimes amounts to several hundred billion dollars per year.
But passports are already well protected, aren't they?
In theory, our passports are well protected. But if customs officers can access the data, it's fair to say that professional criminals will have the same or even better skills. That's what they do day in and day out. And it's not that hard. For example, with credit cards, a smartphone with an Android app is enough to wirelessly read the card data.
What makes Soomz passport covers so secure?
A thin layer oflightweight metal has been incorporated into the Soomz protective covers. 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 promise," says Patrik Scheiber, engineer and Soomz product developer. "The cases provide reliable protection at the most common frequencies 125 kHz, 13.56 MHz, and 900 MHz according to device standards MILSTD-285, NSA65-6, IEEE299, and EN50147-1, which are used in most RFID systems. We've also had the RFID protective covers tested by manufacturers of reading devices," adds Scheiber.
