HOW REAL IS THE RISK?
The bad news is, the risk of being the victim of a digital crime is very real. It‘s common and increasing at an alarming rate – in Australia, and across the world. The fact is, it’s not difficult or illegal for criminals to scan, or harvest unsecured credit and debit card and Passport details. The threat is not just financial either; identity details are being stolen, which is often a far greater problem to a victim than a financial crime.
Everyoneis vulnerable and at risk everywhere but especially in busy public areas and transport hubs. The shear number of people moving in these areas means easy targets and a large number of cards scanned at one time, the distracted nature of people rushing to make flights, trains, trams and buses or the disorientation of a traveller in a foreign country creates an environment that can be exploited.
HOW PROTECTIVE IS RFIDSHIELD?
Fortunately, with RFIDSHIELD, the risk of being skimmed is eliminated – completely. Using E-field technology, RFIDSHIELD is able to totally block ALL the incoming scanning signals. RFIDSHIELD doesn’t require it’s own power source either, so a user doesn’t have to remember to turn it on. RFIDSHIELD draws power from the signals being broadcast by skimming devices, in an attempt to steal information. Those devices that pose a threat, provide RFIDSHIELD with a power source. Once RFIDSHIELD is placed in a wallet or purse or Passport, it can be forgotten. It will activate automatically when it detects a threat. It protects up to 50 cards and 6 passports.
SHOULD I PROTECT MY PASSPORT?
Yes. While there’s no financial risk to a passport holder if skimmed, there’s certainly the risk of an identity related crime being carried out. The information held on a passport can be stolen. The safest, and cheapest form of insurance to guard against this possibility is to place RFIDSHIELD inside your passport, ideally in a RFIDSHIELD passport holder. The RFIDSHIELD passport holder is also enabled with blocking technology. A passport, and any credit cards stored in the RFIDSHIELD Passport holder will be protected from all threatening RFID signals.
