How to Protect Your Credit Cards From RFID Scanning
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a type of chip technology permitting easy access to information. Itís used on business and government IDs, driverís licenses, U.S. passports, mass transit cards, hospital IDs and many credit cards. RFID allows businesses to easily and quickly process information with less contact.
With RFID technology, workers donít have to enter information Ė they simply have to scan an RFID card or chip. In some cases, scanners work so well you donít even have to take your wallet out. Agencies, large corporations and airports can use this technology to scan information from entire crowds, easily allowing authorized personnel through. At your favorite stores, RFID technology makes it easy to pay for purchases without having to interact with a cashier, saving the store money on employee wages.
While RFID technology has been available since approximately 2005, there are some drawbacks. Thieves can buy powerful RFID scanners to access financial information from your credit cards. They can do this in any public place, without ever getting close to your wallet ó and you might not realize youíve been targeted by crowd hacking until days or weeks later.
The news is even worse if you manage a business, agency or organization. The ID your organization has issued may also be vulnerable to electronic pick-pocketing, meaning you could be held responsible if employees are targeted. If your ID cards contain organization-sensitive information or if you want to protect your team, credit card protective sleeves blocking RFID scanners are the ideal solution.
